Donating to Our School Council & Parent Association
Funds raised through Education Matters mentioned below, directly benefit SWC however, all funds raised are spent under CBE guidelines and must be used before the end of school year. As well, there are many items that CBE guidelines will not allow these proceeds to fund (eg. Staff appreciation, event prizes, etc.). In order to fill these funding gaps, at the beginning of every year SWCSC & SWCPA launch the Request for Annual Donation Campaign. Our annual ask is to raise approximately $10 per student which provides an opportunity to further enhance the educational experience of the students at Sir Winston Churchill High School. This Campaign typically nets about $5,000.00 - 8,000.00 for the year with the funds raised used in support of student clubs and activities, as well as SWCSC/SWCPA sponsored events like staff appreciation events and urgent needs put forth by the school Administration as necessary. A small amount of money is also set aside to aid students who couldn’t otherwise participate in events (for example, grad banquet tickets).
Previously, funds raised from this campaign have supported:
- special student events to foster school spirit, strengthen our student community while alleviating stress such as Halloween Trick or Treating, Winter Wonder Week, Spring Carnival, Grade 12 BBQ, the Grade 12 Farewell and many Spirit Days
- Staff Appreciation events to show gratitude to our hardworking SWC staff and boost morale
- urgent needs put forth by the school Administration as necessary
This is generally the sole campaign where SWCSC & SWCPA will ask for funds directly from our school community as we typically will not be running any sales campaigns. 100% of your donations will go directly to SWC school, its students and the operation of SWCSC / SWCPA for this year and next. *Please note that SWC students, teams or the Band Parents Association may still run fundraisers throughout the year for their own causes separate from this campaign.
As always, a heartfelt THANK YOU again for your generosity, commitment and support of the SWC school community!
