Annual Fund 2021-2022

A Tradition of Generosity

The Annual Fund has become a tradition for many families, faculty and staff, one that is essential to our school’s growth and ability to provide students with an outstanding learning environment.

We are immensely grateful to the generosity of SJK families, whose foresight and vision of all that SJK could be, funded the first classrooms and have continued to build our campus. Over time, charitable gifts have supported the Gymnasium, Boathouse, Music Room and Chapel with its piano and the incredible organ it houses. And, students can now enjoy our new Boardwalk and a Low Ropes Course which were constructed this summer.

The 2021-22 Annual Fund

Contributions to this year’s Annual Fund will assist with the expenses that were incurred in response to the pandemic. In preparation for a safe return to campus, the school invested in additional technology for remote learning, an air filtration system, temporary walls, personal protective equipment and much more. The Annual Fund will help offset these unforeseen expenses that were necessary to keep everyone safe and allow learning to continue all-day, everyday and, offsite, if necessary.

Major Gifts for SJK

For almost 50 years, major gifts have supported capital campaigns that have funded the construction of new buildings, equipment for our science laboratories, musical instruments including our grand pianos and chapel organ.  The transformative nature of these major gifts have had a long-lasting impact on our students and will continue to do so for generations.

Major gifts can be funded over time through pledge commitments.  You may donate gifts of securities, life insurance policies or you can include SJK in your estate planning.  

Your gift may be recognized in different ways, including on our Donor Recognition Wall, by the naming of buildings or the spaces within them.

If you would like to discuss ways of making a major gift to SJK, please contact Amelia Canto, Director of Advancement, at 519 648-3602 ext 326.

Your Gift is Important

Every gift makes a difference.  Without contributions from our families, we would not be enjoying the campus and amenities that we have today. Participation in the annual fund enables SJK’s evolution, to meet the needs of students now, and in the future. All charitable gifts are eligible for a receipt for income tax purposes through our registered SJK Foundation.
