Minnesota Waldorf School - Educating the Whole Child: Head, Heart and Hands
The Minnesota Waldorf School Mission Satement:
The Minnesota Waldorf School nurtures children’s highest capacities of thinking, feeling and willing by cultivating a sense of truth, the power of imagination, and a feeling of responsibility for themselves and the world around them.
The Minnesota Waldorf School Annual Fund Drive :
The Annual Fund supports our operating budget and helps fill the gap between what is covered by tuition and the actual cost of educating one child for one year. The Annual Fund allows us to maintain our facilities, provide an unparalled curriculum, and sustain and invest in our talented faculty. It also supports our ability to keep tuition as low as possible and to continue giving 14% (on average) of our total income back to the community in the form of tuition assistance.
For current MWS families considering a gift:
Consider the gifts that the Minnesota Waldorf School brings to your family’s life and consider what your maximum gift to the Minnesota Waldorf School can be. If each of us gives something we can meet or exceed our goal!
For example we would reach our goal if each family could contribute $475, or if:
- 1/3 of families gave $20 per month
- 1/3 of families gave $40 per month
- 1/3 of families gave $60 per month
We ask that you participate at any level you can. A high percentage participation rate (85% or higher) helps MWS when applying for grants or retaining sponsorships or donations for events.
Everyone can make a difference! Please join us!
Alumni, friends and extended family who have seen the benefits of MWS and Waldorf education are also invited to help make possible this unique, lively, and deeply affecting education. Your generous contribution makes a difference for our school, and for the world.
