The mandate of the Mothers' Guild is to raise money for the bursary fund. This fund is set up to provide deserving students with the financial assistance needed for them to attend Loyola.
Here are some interesting facts:
- On average 16% of Loyola's student population benefits from the bursary fund.
- The Mothers' Guild donated $79,505 to the bursary fund in 2015-16 (including over $37,000 from the proceeds of the school store).
- The Mothers' Guild has been in existence for more than 50 years.
HOW WE HELP
This sale is held on the first day of school and on several other occasions during the school year. It provides new students and returning ones with a convenient way of purchasing new and used school clothing.
This event is held in mid November. The Guild hosts a reception following the mass in the school Atrium.
Hosted in May on the Sunday prior to Mother's Day. It begins with a mass in the Eric Maclean, S.J. Centre. A continental breakfast is served in the Atrium following the mass with invited guest speakers. The Mothers' Guild presents their annual report.
Wine & Cheese
Our Wine and Cheese party represents the largest fundraising event of the year. It takes place on the first Sunday of Advent. It provides the Loyola community an opportunity to participate in a silent auction, games, raffles and to get a head start on Christmas shopping at our craft and Christmas boutiques.
