Fundraising and Allocations

Fundraising and Allocations

The Allocations committee handles the dispersal of funds raised by the Parents’ Auxiliary. Every September, a request form is delivered to all teachers and administrative staff inviting them to suggest how the Parents' Auxiliary funds should be spent. PA members can also submit requests.

In November, the Allocations committee meets to prioritize the funding requests and the proposed allocations are brought to a formal vote at the PA General Meeting. This process is then repeated again in March for a second round of spending.

Things to remember

  • Deadline for submitting request forms for the Fall allocations is October 31. Funds are to be spent by the end of February.
  • Deadline for submitting request forms for the Spring allocations is March 1. Funds are to be spent by May 31.
  • Any items not purchased by their respective deadlines will be put back on the “wish list” to be considered at a future allocations funding meeting.
  • Submissions to the “wish list” are welcomed throughout the year.

Endowment and Scholarships

The Parents’ Auxiliary (PA) Endowment Fund helps students who might not otherwise be financially able to attend St. Michaels University School. Auxiliary endowment funds are invested with other St. Michaels University School endowment funds. The interest generated from these investments funds student bursaries.

The Parents' Auxiliary Scholarship is awarded to a Senior School student in need of financial aid, who is a good all-round student that demonstrates active and spirited commitment to community service and leadership.

Families can contribute to this fund through the SMUS Annual Fund by directing their donation towards the Parents’ Auxiliary Endowment Fund. A charitable donation tax receipt will be issued.
