Giving Matters

Annual Giving Campaign 2017/18

Sideyard Rejuvenation:

We are transforming our outdoor environments into unique spaces of possibility. The first stage has been completed; the backyard was transformed in the fall of 2015 thanks to our generous donors that made this possible. Over the next two years, we will focus our fundraising to enhance the larger sideyard. Please support our campaign to build our second natural space at the school. To learn more about the concept and designs of the outdoor environments, please contact Matt Denton at bom@waldorfacademy.org

All of nature begins to whisper its secrets to us through its sounds. Sounds that were previously incomprehensible to our soul now become the meaningful language of nature.‘ – Rudolf Steiner

Why do we fundraise in addition to charging tuition?

Education is expensive. There is no getting around it. Funding is a constant pressure whether you are a public, private or independent non-profit school. Education is labour intensive – the backbone of every school is the highly skilled teacher. It also requires tools – places to work, play and explore, materials to learn with, instruments to make music with. It adds up. At Waldorf Academy we believe in providing a learning environment that requires everyone to invent and create, so we do not aspire to all the bells and whistles you might find elsewhere. Our needs are very specific to our unique program and while tuition can cover our basic operating costs, it does not extend to the extras we need to fulfill our Waldorf ambitions. The Annual Fund is a fundamental part of our ability to offer the best Waldorf environment for your children and we encourage everyone in our community to participate. As little or as much as you can, your gift is an investment in the future.
