Create a lasting impact at SMS through scholarships or campus enhancements

Donate Now

SMS is intentionally small, with a population of just 350 students, thus ensuring the continuation of our 110-year old tradition of providing girls with a personalized learning experience in an intimate classroom setting. Our small size has additional benefits.

It is possible for you to have a transformational and lasting impact at SMS:
If you are in a position to make a tax-deductible donation of $25,000 or more, payable in installments for up to five years, you may:

  • Choose to name a classroom for yourself, your family or someone whom you wish to honour.
  • Establish a named scholarship or bursary to help enroll qualified students who might not otherwise be able to attend SMS.

Furthermore, SMS is planning some significant enhancements to our campus that require private support. If you are interested in a confidential discussion to explore the options for philanthropic giving, please contact: Barbara Sutton, the Director of External Relations, at 250-479-7171 ext 2122 or

“As I always teach my kids to feel grateful, I regarded giving support to SMS as a way to show them the spirit of thanksgiving. Giving such a gift benefits not only the school, but also ourselves”
