Why Support the Annual Appeal?

The Annual Appeal makes a difference in the lives of our students and community

The breadth of the opportunities to support in this year’s Annual Appeal is reflective of the extensive program we offer students. In these complex times, your support is more vital than ever as the school adapts to the educational and safety needs of our students.

Here's five reasons why we ask you to support the Annual Appeal.

We can focus on urgent priorities and programming

We are looking at new ways to use our campus space, learn online and stay connected by staying apart. From creating outdoor classroom spaces and ensuring personal protective equipment and sanitizing stations throughout campus, to providing computers and securing building access, the Urgent Priorities and Programming fundraising priority is about ensuring we can focus on the learning experience while prioritizing student care.

We can upgrade our facilities

We are revitalizing key areas and spaces, informed by our student’s needs. From Chapel renovations and refurbishing Brown Hall, to new gym lighting and enhancements to our Archives, the Upgraded Facilities fundraising priority is about providing facilities for our future and the equipment our students need now to get the most out of their learning experience.

We can have everyday impact

We are providing experiences and access to information to help our students discover their passions while developing lifelong skills. From the Head of School Fund and WiFi upgrades, to the rowing program and school musicals, the Everyday Impact fundraising priorities provide resources to students to help prepare them for life while celebrating our community every day.

We can continue to offer financial aid

We provide financial aid to 20% of our student body annually. Our community is not immune to the challenges so many are facing during these challenging times. Now more than ever we must unite in support of our students and each other. The Financial Aid fundraising priority helps remove the financial barriers for new and returning students to receive an outstanding education at SMUS.

We can support Floreat, our 10-year strategic plan

The Annual Appeal plays an integral role in the success of Floreat, our 10-year strategic plan. By investing in the long-term goals of the school and the immediate needs of our students, we build a school that will continue to grow into the best independent school in Canada.
