GMS will rely on the generosity of its donors to offer its program of excellence and help break the cycle of poverty. Long term sustainability and success has occurred in schools such as GMS where the community has embraced the school and “owned” it. While the costs of the program will be in excess of $20,000 per student per annum, a student’s family only contributes $50 per month. Future fundraising events, and a variety of potential gifts such as student sponsorships, in kind donations, support from foundations, grants and especially individual donations are key to the long term viability of the school to achieve the identified benefits.
GMS is a recognized not-for-profit charitable institution and gifts are eligible for a donation tax credit from CRA.
Our CRA Charitable registration number is 813613767RR0001
For the first three years GMS will not receive any funding from the Province as an independent school. After three years it will become eligible for the “funded Independent School” per pupil grant. Significant financial contributions will continue to be needed to bridge the gap between the per student government grant provided to all independent schools and the cost to deliver our program.
All gifts, regardless of type and size, are critical investments in support of our students and the development of our school. Without the support of friends and benefactors, we will not be able to educate our students. Please consider donating to the education of our students – changing lives, and developing potential through education – one student at a time.

Thank you again for believing in the promise of our students.
