7 So what’s a Gift Catalogue (GC)?! It’s a list of Educational Enrichment Resources and Activities that you can “purchase” through donations to LBP. You can make direct donations… Or give a “Gift of Learning” at a special occasion (Birthday, Christmas, New Year, Mothers & Fathers Days, etc.

9 Why do we need a GC? The Ontario Government through the TDSB funds our children’s education, but Finances continue to be stretched every year The “Essentials” are being provided, but there is very little left over to support “Enrichment” Enrichment enhances our children’s learning experience And we want to simplify and coordinate our fundraising efforts at school
