THANK YOU!

 

Everything that happens at UTS, happens thanks to our donors. In 2017 over 1,000 alumni, parents, grandparents, staff, students, and friends came together and collectively donated $8.4 million this past year. Our Annual Donor Report celebrates your generosity and honours Arbor Society members who have shown their dedication with a planned gift. In this report we acknowledge donations made from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017 – and recognize, with appreciation, your commitment to the ongoing strength of our school.
