The Peter Gzowski Foundation for Literacy Response to the Coronavirus

 

These are certainly difficult and unprecedented times. We all have been affected in so many unexpected ways and it’s difficult to predict what will happen over the next months.
The Peter Gzowski Foundation for Literacy Board of Directors has taken the following steps to protect the public and our PGI partners:
 
  • Canceling the 2020 PGI Season due to public health measures surrounding the coronavirus
  • Supporting our PGI Partners by providing them with the annual distribution from the Foundation in spite of having to cancel all events
  • Canceling our annual PGI Partners Forum due to take place in November 2020. We have distributed the funds budgeted for the Forum directly to our PGI Partners
  • Continuing the Gzowski Awards for learners during 2020
The Peter Gzowski Foundation for Literacy Board of Directors will continue to monitor the situation.
Please stay safe and healthy.

What We Do

Nowhere else in Canada will you find fundraising events like the PGIs.

With at least one PGI in every province and territory, the reach of the PGIs’ far exceeds that of any other literacy fundraising event in Canada. Every dollar raised at both the national and local level is directed to literacy programs in the communities in which the tournaments and fundraising events take place.
