Upper Grand Learning Foundation

The Upper Grand Learning Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization. It is an independent entity managed by a Board of Directors consisting of representatives from the Community, the Public and Separate School Boards. As a registered Charity, the Foundation is able to issue official tax receipts for the donations it receives. The Upper Grand Learning Foundation can issue tax receipts but the G.C.V.I. Alumni Association cannot. The Guelph C.V.I. Alumni Association has become a member of the Upper Grand Learning Foundation and contributions to the Alumni Association will be credited to the G.C.V.I. Alumni Fund and a tax receipt will be issued for donations of $20 or more.


1. Reconstruction Of The Old School Bell

This bell needs to be incorporated into the existing G.C.V.I. auditorium to be functional for very special occasions i.e. commencement, reunions etc. The bell is the last remaining symbol of the 1879 school building.



2. Preservation And Upkeep Of The G.C.V.I. School Archives

The G.C.V.I. school archives have been established at the school. They are currently in the P. G. Reid Resource Center, our library. We are in need of preservation and upkeep for the cataloguing and maintenance of the growing collection.


3. Scholarships/Awards

The Alumni would like to provide scholarships for G.C.V.I. that would be presented at the annual Commencement ceremonies. Please specify which scholarship or award you are sponsoring, such as the Penfold Prize and/or the Durrant Cane.
