A new initiative from the HCGM Fundraising Committee

For all those involved in the I STAND For Our Schools initiative, there is excitement around how we can accelerate the growth of, and enhance the programs offered by, our École Socrates-Démosthène and our supplementary education schools. We know where we must go to reach our milestones and how to achieve our goals.

The HCGM Fundraising Committee has launched a campaign to raise, by this year’s end, $600,000 to invest in pedagogical tools and materials, to contribute to initiatives that will increase student enrollment, to provide financial aid on tuition and to finance upgrades/renovations to our school buildings. On Saturday, May 29, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., there will be a Radiothon to launch the I STAND For Our Schools campaign, hosted by 3 local Greek radio stations: CFMB 1280 AM, Radio Centre-Ville 102.3 FM, and Akrites tou Montreal 1610 AM.  On this day, volunteers will be standing by to receive your pledges. On May 29, call us at 514-738-2421.

With your donation, you will stand for our schools and together we can continue to build on their well-established record of achievement. It is our obligation as Hellenes to continue this legacy and help our schools to achieve an even higher level of excellence!  Stand for our schools as we launch this fundraising initiative! No donation is too small!

We believe that if everyone contributes to a common cause – our schools – together we can make a huge impact. Nothing is more fulfilling than giving to our children!  Let’s give our next generation the tools to grow, to appreciate and to carry on the spirit of Hellenism. It is the right thing to do. It is a gracious thing to do. It is the honorable thing to do. It is pride. It is family. It is the Greek paradigm of “PHILOTIMO”!

The pandemic has had a sobering impact and has taken its toll on our schools. Now more than ever, we must stand for our schools and support their plans for the future. To meet a challenge and succeed requires a new perspective, talent, inventiveness, daring and commitment to address and execute. Nothing less will suffice.
Thank you in advance for your generous contribution.
