John Abbott College is home to more than 6500 full-time day students and an additional 2000 continuing education students. While the College provides an excellent education, the Foundation allows the College to respond to the steadily increasing demands for its services. We help students who need financial support to stay in school.

Your contribution will make an immediate impact!

Your donations to Foundation fundraising events such as the golf tournament, help our top-ranked College assist young people striving to be responsible members of our society, right here, in our community.

Past Events

Joseph, A Chrismas Choral Story

Spectrum Voices, a well-known West-Island choir, will be performing “Joseph, A Choral Story”.
The 2-hour production recounts the Christmas nativity story from Joseph’s point of view. How does he feel when his beloved Mary reveals that she is ‘with child’, not from another human, but from God?

This choral story weaves together threads that resonate in contemporary life: loyalty, isolation, and ultimately our duty to cherish life.

Created by Margaret Forrest & John Halpin (John Abbott College’s Director General), Joseph will be performed by 6 soloists accompanied by a 15-voice choir with piano accompaniment.

The John Abbott College Foundation is holding a benefit evening at the November 16 presentation at Sainte Veronica’s Church in Dorval.
In addition to the show, ticket bearers will have the opportunity to meet the cast during cocktail following the performance.
