St. Thomas More Catholic School 2023-24

Hello Families of STTM!

If The Morgan Foundation has funded an activity or activities for a student in your family, please consider donating that amount to the foundation if you can afford to do so.

When you donate more than the cost of a single student, you are helping to ensure that additional students will be given opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities next year.

A list of the activities funded by The Morgan Foundation is below, and will be updated throughout the year.

How to Donate

Donations to The Morgan Foundation are made through the Algonquin & Lakeshore Catholic District School Board, a registered charity.

Use the form on this page to donate today. The School Board has partnered with CanadaHelps to process charitable donations. 

All donations made through this method will receive a charitable receipt via email from CanadaHelps. 

For more ways to donate, go here.

Donate for the year

If you care to save time, feel free to make a larger lump sum donation or set-up a monthly donation that meets your budget needs (and save the time donating with each activity).

Share this opportunity with grandparents and extended family members who may be interested in helping our school. 

As always, donating to The Morgan Foundation is completely optional.

Activities for all STTM students, Grades K to 8!

"It was a good experience and made me want to skate more. I liked being with my friends. We took a lot of photos and made a lot of memories!"

Ice Skating

In February and March, STTM rented the ice at the Kingston Memorial Centre four times. Every student had the opportunity to go skating twice. For many students this was their first time on skates! Thank you to the extended STTM community for donating so many skates and helmets ensuring not a single student missed out.
