Annual Fund

Contributing to the greater good. of the hive is at the core of a bee’s life. Each and every bee humbly gives of itself to support its community as it prepares for the days ahead. For this simple reason, we wish to embody the spirit of the bee during this year's Helping Our Hive Thrive Annual Fund Campaign. In conjunction with the celebration of our 31-year history, this year's 31-day Annual Fund Campaign runs from October 17 to November 16. The Annual Fund team will post fun events throughout the campaign on Instagram and Facebook, as well as great stories from fellow "bees" in the community who will discuss what resonates in their hearts about their Waldorf experience. 
 
Our goal is to raise WSA family participation in our Annual Fund from 84% to 100%. This will help to better position our school in seeking grants from corporations and charitable foundations, and send the message to our own Waldorf community that we support each other 100%. This year, you can help us raise $131,000 by making a contribution in an amount that is meaningful to your family. All gifts, large and small, are put to good use keeping the day-to-day operations of WSA running smoothly, while also supporting new initiatives for our children. Our goal is to record every family’s pledge by November 16, 2017; however, pledges can be fulfilled over the course of the 2017-18 school year through June 30, 2018. We thank the many families who are already helping our hive thrive, and we thank you for your generous support and ongoing vote of confidence toward our school. 
 

This year, donors who pledge $100 or more can proudly join the community buzz with a honeybee commemorative car magnet. Those who join our Honeycomb Society by pledging $310 or more will receive a honeybee commemorative car magnet, a #WSAbuzz t-shirt, and new for this year, they will be entered into a drawing for a seven day/six night stay at a lakeside home owned by a current WSA family at nearby Lake Sinclair. The earlier you make your Honeycomb Society pledge, the more entries you'll have to win this week-long getaway, which will be announced on November 17, 2017.

The Sun Circle Challenge — This year we have received two very generous matching gifts from our parent body. The first is a significant gift of $5,000 with a matching component to encourage new contributors at the Sun Circle giving level of $1,000. The second substantial matching gift of $10,000 matches any gift that has increased by $1,000 from last year's gift. These two matching challenge gifts inspire us all to open our hearts, as well as our pockets, to stretch our giving in support of our school.

Your generosity enables us to broaden the scope and inherent value of what we offer at our school, as we join together to maintain our vibrant, robust, and committed educational tradition. Your gift is one of the most profound statements of support our school can receive. Every gift is deeply valued!
