Overview

To sustain and enrich a Waldorf education for our children, we must rely on more than just tuition. Your generous expression of shared commitment and support ensures that DWS will be able to continue to offer an outstanding and inspiring education to our students today and for many years to come.

We ask everyone to give or raise as much as they can. We have developed a roadmap to reach our goals. The biggest single gift of $10,000 will be donated once we reach 100% participation.

If your budget allows or if you can commit to a fund-raising goal at any of the below thresholds, then please do. 

FamiliesHow Much Should I Give
1$10,000
4$2,500
25$1,000
50$500
35$200
40$100
50$50


No gift is too small. We ask that each family gives what works for their budget. Every gift gets us closer to our goal and helps us secure the $10,000 grant.

Your donation:

  • Helps limit tuition increases
  • Supports full programs
  • Strengthens faculty and staff compensation
  • Maintains an economically-diverse student population
