Our annual Spring Bursary Fundraiser is coming up on May 18th 2021.
Tune in to our Virtual Fundraiser on our website or Youtube channel and get a glimpse at a ‘Day in the Life of Westgate’, where you’ll hear from students and staff, plus some musical performances from our band and choirs.
Every year Westgate supports a number of families with the cost of tuition through our Bursary Program. Money for bursaries comes entirely from fundraising, and we rely on our generous community for support.
The need for bursaries is growing every year, and we have seen a significant increase in the last 6 years with requests jumping from $25,000 in 2015 to $62,000 in 2019.
In 2020 we raised $63,000 in net income for bursaries and were able to assist 15 families and a total of 17 individuals with bursaries. All gifts, big or small, help grow our community of amazing students.
If you are able to make a contribution to the Bursary Program we would be very grateful for your support!
In addition to our Virtual Program, we have a special pick-up meal you can pre-order for May 17th; a Prize Raffle with some amazing donations from our community; and a Torte Raffle where you can win a delicious dessert from one of our Westgate community bakers.
**Please note, our meal orders and torte raffle are now closed.**
THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS SPONSORS FOR SUPPORTING THIS EVENT!
