"We've chosen the Halifax Grammar School as our family's "charity of choice" over the next ten years. What this means is that we have made what is, for our family, a "stretch" financial commitment to the School for the next ten years that supports both annual operating and capital priorities.
We support a number of community organizations but we feel that the School needs and deserves a special focus in our annual giving. HGS is doing important work and it does not yet have a broad well-established donor base like some other organizations in our community.
We believe in the School's Mission and Vision, we believe in the children attending the school and we believe in the School's leaders and faculty. Access to a quality education is so important for our children and the school is a great asset to the community - our graduates are capable, talented and confident young women and men who are equipped to pursue their chosen paths and to contribute to their communities.
So for us, this was the right choice. Lily is in grade three now, and she loves the school so much she's already asked us if there is an HGS University!"~Douglas, Maureen and Lily Reid
