Pickering College - Learning For Life. Creating The Future.

Why give?

Maintaining our academic excellence, small class sizes, superior faculty and co-curricular activities requires support. Pickering College is dedicated to ensuring that our students have access to learning and living spaces that support 21st century skills such as: creativity, collaboration, communication, character and critical thinking.

Like the majority of independent schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of our students' education. At PC, tuition approximately covers 84 per cent of operating costs. We rely on the philanthropic generosity of our entire community to make ongoing improvements and enhancements to our programs, facilities, to increase financial aid offerings and support faculty professional development. Your gift supports the people and programs that make Pickering College unique and distinctive.

The cornerstone of philanthropy is Pickering College’s Annual Giving campaign. Support is solicited through an annual appeal to the school community and through PC Signature fundraising events.

As Pickering College continues to grow, we strive to build our endowment fund and currently, we are fundraising for significant renovations to our campus through the Light The Way capital campaign.

It is our hope that all members of Pickering College – parents, alumni and friends alike –will demonstrate their pride in and commitment to our Spirit of Community by lending their philanthropic support through financial donations. We ask you to help us continue to build a global community of lifelong leaders who are socially responsible and academically prepared.

Pickering College is very grateful to its generous community of donors for their ongoing support of the school, students and programs.
