Welcome to Gowns for Grads Winnipeg

About Us

Our Organization

Gowns for Grads Winnipeg is a volunteer-run organization. We believe that graduating high school is a huge accomplishment, and that every graduate deserves the chance to celebrate their success. To support their achievement, Gowns for Grads collects donations of gowns, shoes, purses and jewelry. We re-distribute these items to graduates within the province who would otherwise not be able to afford them.

Our History

The Gowns for Grads program began at St John's High School in 2009. From 2011 through 2017, the Laura Milner White Committee generously supported the program. Currently, Gowns for Grads remains 100% volunteer run and donation based, and is managed by the Gowns for Grads Winnipeg Committee.  To date, we have given out thousands of grad dresses to deserving graduates.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide gowns and accessories to high school graduates who are confronted by poverty and other life challenges, so they can celebrate their accomplishments in style, alongside their peers.
