We can’t thank you enough for supporting the IGS Giving Day

What a week it has been for IGS. Together we raised more than $100,000 for key IGS programs, by harnessing the generosity of the IGS community in a 24-hour Giving Day campaign.

This amount was double the original goal we had set for ourselves. You can see the final result of the campaign here.

Thanks to the support of our community, we are able to continue the IGS Indigenous Scholarship Program, and expand our plans for our IGS Bibliothèque, an expanded library, research centre and learning hub at the heart of the School.

We have also raised funds to support eligible senior students to take part in an IGS exchange opportunity through the Alumni Language Exchange Scholarship.

The School would also extend thanks to donors of all ages, including Maeve and Billy in Kindergarten.

“I can’t believe what we have been able to achieve together!” said IGS Director of Advancement Julia Glass.

“As both an alumna and staff member of the School, this is very heartening.

“The result was beyond our expectations but truly shows the support the community holds for these fabulous initiatives. Thank you so much, again.”

Principal Shauna Colnan shared the following video message on the Giving Day:
