Annual Fund

As a member of our greater community–be it alumni, past parent, current parent, or someone for whom Shawnigan played a key role–when you look at your time at Shawnigan, who is the person that made all the difference?

At Shawnigan, we strive to foster curiosity, compassion, community, and courage. This is done by and through the people of Shawnigan Lake School.

We have decided this year to cultivate kindness by honouring these individuals that make all the difference.

Through the link below, we invite you to write a letter (or tribute) to the person who made an important difference to you. Later this fall, as part of our Annual Fund campaign, we will also invite our community to donate in this person’s name to an area of the school that will continue their legacy at Shawnigan, now and into the future. If you would like to do so right away, you can follow the link below.

Write a Tribute

Help us cultivate kindness this year by writing a letter to “your person.” For those who we can contact, we will share your letter. We also hope to share excerpts from messages we receive on our Tributes page and in future publications so that our community can connect with the kindness and legacy of dedicated Shawnigan staff and supporters over the years.

Donate in Honour

Consider a gift directed to an area of the school that you feel embodies the legacy of the individual you are honouring. What did they value most at Shawnigan, and how can we ensure that their passion lives on? Would they want to support students on financial aid, upgrades to their favourite house, new gear for the rugby teams, new technology for our CASE and Applied Arts programs, or something else?

On the subsequent donation page you will have the option to donate to this specific area of the school (eg. House, Sport, Co-curricular) in honour of your specific person.
