Giving to Discovery

Our vision for Discovery School
Discovery School is now taking a big step forward!

We have moved to the Wilkinson Road site to fulfill our vision is of a larger, better equipped school that will be a resource for children, parents and teachers in Victoria and across Vancouver Island. We want to say, “Yes” to every qualified child who applies to our school.

Please consider making a donation to Discovery School. Your gift will not only help individual students make the most of their abilities, but will help build stronger families, a more capable and adaptable workforce, and a more caring community.

Current fundraising projects

Capital Campaign: Replacing the Playground

Our playground is in desperate need of some rejuvenation, as the structures are breaking and falling apart. Often we have issues with parts of the playground having to be taped off due to safety concerns of the ageing equipment. This is particularly difficult for students when sections of the already small field are shut down as well because it is so waterlogged. There are currently only 4 swings and the top bar is starting to bow when all 4 seats are in use. The swings are highly coveted, even with older students because of the benefits they find in regulating their sensory needs when they are overwhelmed or overstimulated. We need to invest in playground equipment suited for middle school aged students.
We need to raise $100,000 over a period of 5 years.

Bursary and Endowment Fund: Supporting Parents and Children

We know it can be difficult to afford school fees. We have established this bursary fund to provide financial support for students and their parents.
We need to raise $25,000 to establish this fund.

Technology Replacement Fund: Keeping up with change

If you’ve ever had to upgrade your computer, you know how expensive it can be. Students at Discovery School deserve to have up-to-date computers in the classroom, and our teachers rely on current generations of hardware to deliver specialty educational programming.
We need to raise $30,000 for this fund.

Teaching Equipment and Supplies: Meeting students’ needs

Our teachers do amazing things with the equipment we have, but specialized education often requires specialized equipment, and that can be very expensive. This fund helps ensure that students receive the instruction they deserve.
We need to raise $20,000 for this fund.

Thank you for helping Discovery School say, “Yes” to helping children’s dreams come true.
