Every year, you can choose to sponsor another family into the program, so that our program can remain accessible to all PNW families with a French Background who would like their students to be supported in their multi-cultural education journey!
Speaking more than one language, especially when it is part of your family background, is a tremendous benefit for our children, improving cognitive skills, mind flexibility, adaptability, which are all very important in our increasingly globalized and complex world. At EFGS, providing a high quality learning environment for those bilingual students is our goal and we strive into making our program as accessible as possible without sacrificing sustainability and quality.
We strongly believe in the power of the community (one of our core values), that is why we created this fund to allow families to welcome and support other families of our network into the EFGS program!
What will the funds be used for?
These donations raised into this fund will be used to reduce tuition for families that applies for scholarship. Applicants will be vetted by an independent provider (FAST) and Information submitted by the family will be kept confidential by the EFGS Scholarship Committee and won't be disclosed to outside parties.
WHAT AMOUNT SHOULD I GIVE TO THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND
EVERY gift to the Scholarship Fund is needed and greatly appreciated. We are truly grateful for your contribution as we strongly believe our program should stay accessible to the French-Speaking community.
Why do you need families to give?
At EFGS, we strongly believe in the power of community. This is one of our core value, and over the years, we have seen multiple example of our community generosity and inclusivity. We are a small non-profit that strives to make our program accessible, but if we want to sustainably keep the high-quality of our programs in this increasingly growing cost environment, we can't do it without you!
