Funding the Future
The Delta West Academy Foundation (DWAF) is an independent Society dedicated specifically to fundraising. Families automatically become members of the DWAF upon enrolment and elect a fully parent-run board at the Annual General Meeting.
The DWAF is responsible for choosing the fundraising activities for the coming school year, organizing volunteers and distributing the funds based on a school wish list. The DWA Foundation has made a conscious decision to respect the time parents spend fundraising and has limited the fundraising events to a few large ones every year rather than many smaller ones.
Current fundraising events include provincial Casino nights every 18 months or so, an annual Gala Charity Auction, a Wine Tasting & Nibbles Social, and the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon every May.
DWAF efforts support our school community and students with scholarships, special projects and events, and long-term building funds. For our next Fundraising event, please see our events section.
To contact the DWAF, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of the parent directors will answer your email.
