Annual Giving Fund

Donate to Prairie Moon's Annual Giving Fund

The Annual Giving Fund is Prairie Moon Waldorf School's most important fundraising activity of the year and is an essential part of the school’s operating budget. Our annual budget is comprised of a blend of tuition income and your philanthropic support. Together, these funds support the current operations and essential needs of the school. The Annual Giving Fund is an appeal to all members of our community to make tax-deductible contributions that help ensure the best possible education
for our children. These gifts improve the daily lives of students and faculty members. 

Our goal this year is to raise $100,000.  Recurring donations are the best way to give steady support, but every gift is appreciated!—One Time, Monthly, Quarterly, or Annual.

Why the Annual Giving Fund is Essential

Tuition alone only covers about 85% of the expenses at an independent school like Prairie Moon Waldorf School. Generous donations to our Annual Giving Fund are very important to build a bridge between our income and expenses that allow our school community to thrive.

The funds raised through your annual giving are invested right back into our school community in many ways:

 

  • Tuition assistance $172,153.00                                        50%
  • Teacher and faculty salaries $125,151.23                       36%
  • Academic and enrichment initiatives $42,230.22             12%
  • Professional development opportunities $11,000.00         4%

 

Each year 100% of our Annual Giving Fund support allows Prairie Moon Waldorf School to thrive in our pursuit of education and care for the whole student.

Our Goal of Fiscal Sustainability

Each year our school’s goal is for 100% participation from our entire school community with gifts to our Annual Giving Fund. We encourage our parents and families, staff, faculty, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents and other supporters in our community to consider making a meaningful gift so that we can continue providing the best curriculum, materials, and training to ensure an incredible Waldorf Education and experience for the whole child.


Why is it important for all members of our school community—100% participation—to give? 

Most independent or private schools, especially those that are non-profits, seek to create a sustainable future for their school community.

When our community gives at or close to 100% — that means all families of students in our school make a donation of any amount—we are at our strongest. It says to other potential donors that we are a force to be reckoned with and encourages them to invest and contribute as well.

Help Our Community Thrive

Contribute to the Annual Giving Fund for 2017–2018

We think of our fundraising in the same way that we seek to educate our students—through a lens that takes into account the whole community and the full-circle of possibilities for development.

To this end, we offer many ways to engage and support our school. This includes monthly donations, community fundraising events like the Winterlight Faire, MayFest and other ways to give, including SCRIP, Amazon Smile and Target Red Card—great ways to help you raise money for our school every time you shop.

Please consider committing to a manageable monthly gift of $5, $10, $20/month or more!
