Since 1958 it has been the continued generosity of people like you and the support of the Westgate community that has helped us in providing one of the best private educational programs in Winnipeg.
Government funding is less than half of the total cost of educating our students. Tuition and financial assistance from our thirteen supporting congregations makes up much of the remaining portion. The balance must come from the generosity of giving community, you.
Your gifts allow us to meet the needs of our students.

Considered one of the highest forms of giving, a bequest is a selfless investment in the lives of those perhaps not known to the giver.
