Annual Giving – Growing a strong community together


We invite you to allow your investment to be a conduit for some of your, and our, greatest intentions.

The Nelson Waldorf School Annual Giving Campaign is one of our most important sources of revenue.

Like most independent schools, the Nelson Waldorf School relies on the generous support of donors to increase funds over and above current funding through tuition fees, Provincial funding and fundraising efforts. The Annual Giving Campaign is essential to our continuing success.


By giving you will be helping us to: 

  • Deliver developmentally appropriate education that engages the whole child intellectually, artistically, physically and socially
  • Ensure the funding of program enrichment including expanded programs in music, eurythmy, digital citizenship and outdoor education
  • Develop environmentally sustainable practices and learning opportunities
  • Attract, retain, and support educators who value each child and the relevance of Waldorf education
  • Plan and budget to maintain and improve our glorious wilderness campus facilities – supporting proper planning and budgeting for grounds and building maintenance so we don’t end up with urgent repair/replacement crises
  • Offer seasonal community events and celebrations that enhance our membership and outreach
  • Provide financial aid via our Tuition Modification Program to support families who need it

We encourage participation by ALL members of the Nelson Waldorf School community – parents, alumni, family and friends.


Contributions to the Annual Campaign are tax-deductible 

A charitable tax receipt for donations above $20 will be provided.
