AWSNA and WECAN are joining our colleagues in the international Waldorf movement in raising funds to support Waldorf communities in Ukraine during this time of great suffering and violence. 

An emergency support fund is being coordinated by the Friends of Waldorf Education (Die Freunde der Erziehungskunst), through which various and evolving needs of our Ukrainian friends can be addressed. At the moment, Ukrainian children and families are being supported in finding places in Waldorf schools in Europe, and Waldorf families throughout Europe are opening their homes to them. Financial support is being sent to Ukraine to support the Waldorf teachers who have lost their income due to the closing of schools, and emergency pedagogy teams will be working with traumatized Ukrainian children. The types of support will continue to evolve in order to meet the most urgent needs.

VIRGINIA FLYNN FUND For Teacher Professional Development
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.
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.
