The Nelson Waldorf School engages in a wide variety of fundraising activities throughout the year to support the curriculum. Some fundraising activities are class-specific, often focussed on raising funds for class trips, while others are school-wide. We ask parents to consider providing financial and fundraising support to the school.

Strength in Numbers Annual Campaign

The Strength in Numbers Annual Campaign is a direct appeal to parents, grandparents, alumni families, faculty and staff for financial contributions in support of the school’s operating budget. Like most independent schools, the Nelson Waldorf School relies on this generous support to bridge the gap between operating expenses and tuition income.

Supporting Students and Teachers

The majority of our annual budget goes toward tuition assistance and salaries for our dedicated faculty and staff. Support for the Annual Campaign allows us to continue to provide generous levels of tuition assistance while properly compensating those who provide the rich educational program our students receive.

Every Gift Helps

We ask all families to support the Annual Campaign, to whatever extent possible. Every gift is significant and helps strengthen our community. Contributions to the Annual Campaign are tax-deductible and can be made online or at the school.
