This year, we ask all families, faculty, and board help us complete the funding circle to create a unified, vibrant, and enriching school community for our children!
This is a time for us all to come together and rally support for our beautiful school. Every donation, no matter the size, counts!
What is the Annual Giving Campaign?
What does the campaign fund?
The Annual Giving campaign is the most important fundraiser of the school year. It is the opportunity for us all to work towards the community we dream of and close the circle in funding that exists between tuition revenue and the ever-increasing cost to operate our school, which includes faculty and staff salaries, professional development, tuition assistance, and facilities maintenance and improvements. The Annual Campaign is the dedicated venue in which we, as a school, ask for support from everyone in our school community—current parents, faculty, staff, alumni, alumni parents and friends of the school
Why 100% Participation
When we can highlight strong participation within our school community, it makes way for greater and more diverse giving avenues. Having a unified and supportive school community is one of the essential markers larger donors, sponsors, and foundations look for when considering making a gift to our school. Additionally, it is a concrete expression of our unified and striving community spirit.
What about tuition?
Tuition about 90% of our annual expenses. Raising tuition to cover all operating expenses would require a drastic increase of annual tuition, which would make our school out of reach for many families. Eugene Waldorf School works strives to stay as accessible as possible so a wide range of families can attend.
What is the average amount gifted to the Annual Giving Campaign?
Gifts typically range from $10-$10,000. The school’s average is $250.
What if we have more than one child at the school? Do I need to make a gift on behalf of each child in order to receive the full participation credit?
One gift per family represents all children in your household!
Can my gift be matched by my employer?
Many company’s match employee charitable contributions. Please check with your Human Resource office. You may be able to double or even triple your gift!
Does my gift qualify for tax credit?
Yes. Eugene Waldorf School is an independent not for profit school. All gifts will be acknowledged by the school with a letter that verifies your contribution.
