We have several festivals a year like the Harvest Festival and May Faire. These festivals are a rich part of a Waldorf school’s life and they serve as both fundraisers and as community outreach. We can contribute the rest of the year as well in small but powerful ways – when polled, 98% of all gnomes agree, that this is THE easiest way to make extra money for our school.

Annual Fundraising

Annual Giving Campaign


Please pledge by December 15, 2017

This year the goal is to raise $40,000 dollars. Funds raised will help support our school in various ways such as outreach, tuition assistance, facility repairs, and playground maintenance. It will also provide our teachers with opportunities to enrich and diversify their professional skills in Waldorf education, skills that they will bring to the classroom for our children.

We strive for full participation from our entire school community. It’s not a matter of how much you donate, it’s your participation that is key to defining the health of our community and the strength of our commitment to growing our school together and giving the gift of a Waldorf education.

We hope you will join us as each step together helps fulfill our school mission, one inspired by the words of Rudolf Steiner:

Our Mission

Our unique approach to education, based on the work of Rudolf Steiner, provides rigorous learning experiences that engage the mind, enliven the imagination, and honor the spiritual development of each child. Our rich curriculum lays the foundation for each student to become a confident, creative, and critical thinker who is ready to take the next step toward a life of meaning and purpose.

“Receive the children with reverence,

Educate them with love,

Send them forth in freedom.”

– Rudolf Steiner
