South Shore Waldorf School Annual Giving Campaign
Waldorf education offers a full academic curriculum enriched with arts, music, handwork, languages, and movement. It provides a screen-free environment in which each child is received as a unique human being and supported in becoming their best, most creative, most accomplished selves.
At the South Shore Waldorf School, children learn how to think rather than what to think, enabling them to meet their life challenges with confidence and to contribute creatively to humanity.
The South Shore Waldorf School Annual Giving Campaign is essential to our continuing success. It allows us to cover costs associated with our day-to-day operations and supports our unique tuition assistance program.
Our goal is to raise a minimum of $15,000 with 100% participation from our community. We will be donating 5% of the money we raise through our Annual Giving Campaign to the Madagascar School Project (www.madagascarschoolproject.com), which grants 700 of the poorest Malagasy children a Waldorf-inspired education.

Why is the Giving Campaign necessary?
As an independent school we do not receive government funding. Tuition covers only a portion of the cost of educating a student. Our Annual Giving Campaign helps us make up the difference between the actual cost of educating each student and the tuition charged.
Why not raise tuition?
No independent school could charge the full cost of educating its students without making the cost of tuition prohibitive for all but the wealthiest parents. Hence every independent school has an annual giving appeal. One of the guiding principles at the South Shore Waldorf School is that Waldorf education should be accessible to all who want it. For this reason it is critical that we keep our tuition as low as possible. All donations over $20 will receive a donation receipt.
Who supports the Annual Giving Campaign?
The entire school community supports the Annual Campaign. Contributions come from board members, parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends and supporters of Waldorf education.
How Much Should I Give?
Whatever you are able to give. Regardless of the size of the donation, your participation in the Annual Giving Campaign demonstrates your support of the South Shore Waldorf School’s core values and mission. Every gift, no matter the amount, is received with gratitude and appreciation.
