HELP CHANGE LIVES BY SUPPORTING LITERACY

The Peter Gzowski Foundation for Literacy is happy to announce the 2022 PGI season!

 

No matter the venue, all PGI partners are mindful that people’s safety comes first during this difficult and challenging time. While many of our partners continue to determine what 2022 might look like for them, some PGI partners are mounting their own online, virtual events. Other PGI events may be in person if they feel they can in their provinces or territories.

PGIs remain committed to raising awareness about literacy and helping to support literacy programs across the country.

The 2022 PGI Season will be a mix of online and in-person events recognizing the need to stay safe during this time.

What We Do

Nowhere else in Canada will you find fundraising events like the PGIs. Groups of highly motivated local volunteers supported by well- known Canadian writers, poets, musicians and other celebrities coming together to raise funds for literacy. 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.
