Leaflet A word from David Théorêt, campaign chairman I am very proud to be the Honorary Chair of the 2021 edition of the fundraising campaign for the College Bourget Foundation. As an alumnus of the College, I am grateful for the quality of the education I received as well as the tools and human values that were transmitted to me in order to become the entrepreneur that I am. My involvement in this campaign aims to give back to the community so that a new generation of students can also benefit from this quality education. The objective of this campaign is to raise $3 million to improve the educational offer of the school, notably through the construction of new outdoor areas and the improvement of its sports and cultural facilities. The realization of these projects will contribute to the outreach of the College, its students and its community. Discover our spokespersons Marjorie Vallée Host, Rythme 105.7 My time at College Bourget was significant in my life. It is the place where I made important encounters and where unique friendships that still last to this day were born. It is also because of my five years at College Bourget that I learned who I was, what defines me as a person, by getting involved in different spheres of student life. I am so proud to be a part of this great family and it is for that reason that I agreed without hesitation to be one of the spokesperson for the College Bourget Foundation Major Fundraising Campaign. Matt Holubowski Singer-songwriter It was on the stage of the auditorium of the Main Pavilion of College Bourget that I performed for the first time. The practice room at Querbes Hall was the first place where I could play guitar at full volume without damaging my family’s ears. One of my fondest memories from high school was performing in the QLP courtyard (which is where I sang in public for the first time!). It is therefore a great pleasure, all these years later, to be invited to be a spokesperson for the College Bourget Foundation and their Major Fundraising Campaign. Long live art! Jean-Philippe Bolduc Retired professional football player I am very pleased to join the College Bourget Foundation’s Major Fundraising Campaign as a spokesperson. I spent seven wonderful years as a resident at the College. I loved my experience. During my last visits, I had a small feeling of jealousy but also a great feeling of pride in the new sports facilities. It is a great honour for me to have the opportunity to contribute to the future athletic facility projects so that future Bourget College students can enjoy their experience as much as I did.

Sports challenge - We are Bourget We are Bourget What is the Sports Challenge – We are Bourget? This fundraising event, for the College Bourget Foundation, takes place in the spring. Each participant pledges to raise money and take on a personal sports challenge (for instance, running 5 or 10 km). Participants can enter individually or in teams and the challenge itself is determined by them. The end goal of the Sports Challenge is to raise money, which will be used to improve the outdoors athletic installations, but also to promote physical activity by creating a collective movement in our community. 2022 We are Bourget Sports Challenge For the 2nd edition of the Défi Sportif Nous Sommes Bourget, the Fondation Collège Bourget is proud to have raised $ 30 096,00 which will be invested in the outdoor projects of the major fundraising campaign.

Launch of major fundraising campaign The College Bourget Foundation has launched its major fundraising campaign on Wednesday, October 13. The launch of the campaign took place in the beautiful scenery of the College. Surrounded by the greenhouse, garden and orchard, our guests had the chance to see the amazing environment our youth experience. The launch took place with honoured guests, in addition to the campaign cabinet, members of the board of directors, members of the direction and employees of the College. We had the honour to host our Members of Parliament, Mrs. Marilyne Picard, provincial Member of Parliament for Soulanges, and Mr. Peter Schiefke, federal Member of Parliament for Vaudreuil-Soulanges. Moreover, the event gave us the opportunity to introduce our Campaign Chairman, David Théorêt, CEO of Roxboro, and our spokespeople, Marjorie Vallée, host at Rythme 105.7, Matt Holubowski, singer-songwriter, and Jean-Philippe Bolduc, retired professional football player. Our four alumni will be the proud ambassadors for the next five years. The objective of this fundraising campaign is to raise $3 million before 2026. The Foundation has already raised $1.5 million and wished to surpass its goal. The College Bourget has always been a leader in the field of education. This is why the projects put forth this education philosophy so dear to Bourget: pedagogy in communion with the environment and a comprehensive education. We would like to take a moment to thank the children of the Harvey Family who have nicely agreed to be the face of the campaign.
