Support the healthy and sustainable development of Waldorf education in North America
Waldorf Education logo
Philanthropic giving from AWSNA members and friends supports the delivery of essential services to member Waldorf schools and teacher training institutes.
 
Donor generosity supports accreditation, teacher development, pedagogical support, administrative best practices, and continental representation, outreach, and advocacy – all of which help Waldorf education to grow and thrive for the benefit of children across the continent.
 

AWSNA accepts gifts from individuals, foundations and corporations who share our commitment to Waldorf education.


WAYS TO GIVE:
The Community Relief Fund has been established to help schools and institutes get through the financial challenges related to COVID-19. All money donated to the fund will be used to reduce annual AWSNA member dues for members in need for the 2020-2021 school year, while at the same time provide the continuance of service and resources that have proven to be instrumental during this time. We thank you for considering a gift of any amount.
 
Many factors contribute to student achievement but research suggests that among school-related factors, teachers have the greatest influence on student learning. To that end, the strength of our movement lies in the quality of the classroom experience. The Virginia Flynn Fund, a board-directed fund established in 2011, provides support for initiatives related to teacher training, professional development and teacher support.
 
Celebrate the special people in your life or pay tribute to loved ones, while advancing Waldorf education. Unless otherwise designated, Honorary and Memorial gifts support AWSNA's annual fundraising campaign.
 

AWSNA's Annual Fund provides for essential resources to support member schools and strengthen Waldorf education in North America; contributions for unrestricted purposes come from individuals, foundations and corporations, including AWSNA's leadership and growing circle of friends. Make a one-time gift to the Annual Fund, or sign up for a monthly recurring donation!

RESTRICTED GIFTS
Donors are welcome to make a restricted contribution to support specific projects or longstanding programs, such as our Teacher Education Loans and Grants fund. If you are interested in supporting a designated restricted gift program, contact the Advancement Office.
 
LEGACY SOCIETY
The Legacy Society is made up of individuals who seek to ensure the future of Waldorf education for generations to come by including AWSNA in their wills and future planning. 

We hope you will let us know if you have included or intend to include AWSNA in your estate, so that we may thank you and make sure we understand how you would like your gift to be directed. Please contact the Advancement Office for information about estate gifts.
