Annual Giving Campaign

Your support of our Annual Giving Campaign helps our school to grow and thrive!

At London Waldorf School, we are committed to providing an environment in which children can grow and flourish. One that fosters curiosity and imagination and develops strong academic skills. An environment that nurtures healthy development and preserves the magic of childhood.

We count on support from our community to help provide resources to support programming, professional development, materials, and experiences for our students and faculty. Whether you donate a little or a lot, every gift helps us continue building toward this vision.

Donations may be made online through CanadaHelps by using the form below. If you would prefer to give by cash, cheque or e-transfer. Please email Leigh Ann at [email protected] to make arrangements.

Thank you so much for your generous support!

Annual Giving Campaign FAQ

The Annual Giving Campaign is the single most important fundraising activity for London Waldorf School each year.  100% your tax-deductible gift to the Annual Giving Campaign supports the day-to-day operations of our school and helps us to continue to grow and thrive!

Your gift- no matter the size – is an important contribution toward covering the difference between tuition revenue and the ever-increasing costs of operating our school, and ensures we all have a stake in the future of Waldorf education right here in London, Ontario.

What is the Annual Giving Campaign?

The Annual Giving Campaign is a yearly appeal to board members, parents, grandparents, alumni parents, alumni, faculty, staff, family, and friends for financial contributions to support the school’s operating expenses. This year, London Waldorf School’s Annual Giving Campaign goal is $10,000.

Why is the Annual Giving Campaign necessary?

LWS families already make a significant financial contribution to the school by paying tuition. However, there is a gap between tuition income and LWS’s annual operating budget. London Waldorf School is not alone in this; many Waldorf schools and independent schools ask their communities to support them in this way. We are sustained by the collective generosity of parents, grandparents, and friends who make tax-deductible gifts of all sizes, each year, through Annual Giving.

How does LWS raise money besides the Annual Giving Campaign?

In addition to the Annual Giving Campaign, London Waldorf School depends on fundraisers (including capital campaign opportunities, major donors, grants, and events such as the Silent Auction, Fairs, and others) to raise funds.

Why is participation important?

The school’s financial strength is dependent on the participation of all members of its constituency. Your participation generates enthusiasm and encourages others to join in supporting the school,
and it is a key indicator to prospective grantors and other donors that we have consistent support from those we serve, both past and present.

How much should I give?

You are the only one who knows how much you are able to give. What matters most is your participation. Each gift, no matter the size, makes an impact.

Another possible resource is employers who are willing to match an employee’s contribution. If you think this might apply to you, please ask your employer if that is an option.

How do I give?
