There's Still Time to Support our Annual Appeal!

As an alumna, you are naturally a part of the school's history. Please take this opportunity to be part of Branksome's future as well!


Through the Branksome Becomes Campaign, we're building a new Athletics and Wellness Centre, and the school's financial aid endowment to ensure that a Branksome education is accessible to promising girls from across the socioeconomic spectrum.  


It is the power of collective giving, in the form of gifts at every level, that creates the strongest possible Branksome for today's students.


We sincerely thank our alumnae who have shown their support through a donation in this fiscal year, which closes on June 30.


Alumnae who wish to be included in this year's campaign - it's not too late to participate!


As Principal Edith M. Read (1910-1958) once wrote, "No school has a more loyal alumnae. Please consider making a gift-large or small."
