Tuition is raised from time to time to reflect increased operating expenses and the cost of living index. However, these increases do not fully cover the cost of a Southpointe education at a level that would be competitive in the independent school market. In addition, gifts to the school are tax-deductible, where tuition is not.
All gifts, no matter the size, contribute directly to the enhancement of a Southpointe Education. By making a gift, you are advancing our culture of giving, and ensuring that our students can learn, lead, and succeed. Your support impacts every student, every day.
Yes, funds are also raised through our annual Southpointe Gala. The 2020-2021 Virtual Gala will take place on Saturday, May 1, 2021. At this event, we welcome participation through monetary gifts, advertisements, or gift-in-kind contributions to the auctions and raffles.
Here at Southpointe, our main priority is to strengthen the philanthropic culture within our community. While there are suggested donation amounts listed on our giving page, we welcome and appreciate donations of all sizes, at a level that is both meaningful and within your means.
Yes, donors can choose to make a one-time gift or pledge a donation over the school year. Donations can be made online, credit card, cheque, or transfer of securities. We also accept WeChat and Alipay.
