The Leonard Wilde Society

The Leonard Wilde Society

Neuchâtel Junior College was founded by a visionary educator named Leonard Wilde. He imagined the possibility of bringing students from across Canada together in an international context to help enrich their worldview. His passion for education, languages and travel fuelled his determination to bring the vision to reality in Neuchâtel.    

Mr. Wilde shaped our foundation. Our community of students, alumni, faculty, staff, families and donors have been shaping the Neuchâtel of today.

Through the Leonard Wilde Society, we honour the community members who have generously supported NJC through a lifetime contribution of $10,000 or more. Donors who have given over $20,000 are also commemorated on a plaque on campus.

Leonard Wilde Society donors who have given since 2010 are recognized below.
