Development and Giving

The Washington Waldorf School Community–parents, alumni, faculty and staff, and other friends of the school--have been exceptionally generous over the years in helping to sustain the school.

Tuition alone does not cover the cost of Waldorf Education. Although the Washington Waldorf School raises some funds from special events such as the Fall Bazaar and Spring Gala, and most classes raise funds for special class-specific activities, we depend on the the generous financial support of the entire school community, alumni, and friends to strengthen the school through giving to the Annual Fund.

The school we have now is in large measure a gift from those who came before us. We hope that all of us in the school community will remember that our gifts will make a very significant contribution to what the school can be in the future.

In spring of 2012 we signed a long-term lease, of up to 30 years, with Montgomery County on our current building. This is a very important milestone for the School and is the result of years of work by a dedicated team led by Trustees Council Chairman Dan Wacker. With a long-term lease we now have the opportunity to make much needed capital improvements to our building. The Build Our Vision Capital Campaign is an all-community effort to realize long-sought improvements to our building. It's good to have a real home!
