Right now, Waldorf Schools around the country and around the world are reaching out to their communities with Annual Appeal Campaigns. That’s right - WSNO is not alone in its need to gather supplemental funds to maintain a healthy, thriving school. On average, the gap between the tuition a WSNO family pays per child and the amount it actually costs to educate that child is about $1000. Fundraising, including the Annual Appeal, fills this gap.
Giving is essential. Of course, tuition represents a significant financial commitment that families already make to educate their child/children at WSNO. This emphasis of full school participation is not based on the size of your contribution. Please participate by making a financial gift to the school at the most generous level your family can afford.
The budgeted income from this campaign is $35,000. However, we do not have to stop there! To measure our success, we will place a leaf on our school chalkboard in the office for each gift given. We would LOVE to see a full tree! Waldorf School of New Orleans education is truly unique. The rigorous curriculum of interdisciplinary subject matter, handwork, arts and music appeal to the head and the hands. Examine what this education means to you and your family and reflect its importance with your gift. Thank you!
