    The Advancement Office is involved with alumni relations, events, the Alumni News, and external relations for the Annual Fund and the Centennial Plan.

    Our aims are to promote a greater understanding of the School, to keep you informed, to build a strong network, and to encourage and assist you and those who wish to make a gift to the School.

    Shawnigan is fortunate to be able to count on thegenerosity of our community for annual giving, capital projects and longer term initiatives. Your support sets an example to the rest of our community that you believe in us. By supporting Shawnigan, you make a great school truly exceptional.
    Donations to the School from supporters in Canada, United States and the United Kingdom will receive a tax receipt in the mail. 
    The Shawnigan Centennial
    The focus for the next three years is the Shawnigan Centennial bringing with it the opportunity to secure the future of Shawnigan for the next one hundred years and beyond. The Shawnigan Centennial includes two components, the Learning Commons and the School's endowment. Learn more about the Shawnigan Centennial
    The Annual Fund
    Shawnigan depends on your contribution to the Annual Fund. Your gift to Shawnigan will support a multitude of needs within the school such as scholarships, bursaries and awards, funds for tour & travel, resources for students and staff, priority needs within each House, funds to support the academic and co-curricular programs, plus other unforeseen projects. Learn more about the Annual Fund
    Financial Assistance
    Like every other independent school, Shawnigan’s greatest challenge is balancing affordability with the commitment to offering unique and innovative programs and experiences to every one of our 450-plus students. Your contribution to our Financial Assistance Program helps ensure our ability to offer the very best education to all of the deserving young men and women who call our campus their “home away from home.” Learn more about Financial Assistance
    Capital Giving & Major Gifts
    Major and Principal Gifts are received in connection with Capital Projects or for the Endowment. Recent projects include the Olsen Academic Building (a Languages Centre featuring 9 classrooms and a language lab with 25 computers), John Lecky House (a boarding house built specifically for Rugby Canada and other travelling teams), Marion Hall (our magnificent dining hall) and our two most recent additions - the Shawnigan Sportsplex and the Hugh Wilkinson Studio Theatre.
    Planned Giving & the Legacy Society
    Planned gifts help secure Shawnigan’s future because they are, quite literally, “gifts that keep on giving.” The Shawnigan Lake Legacy Society has been established as a way of paying tribute to supporters who have communicated to the School their intention to make a planned or future gift. Learn more about Planned Giving
