Every Child Matters. Every Family Matters.
Every Gift Matters.
During this season for inward reflection and giving thanks, I am reminded of all the things in my life for which I am grateful. Topping that list is Tucson Waldorf School, a place where children are nurtured and guided with love and respect. I am deeply grateful that my children can experience the richness of a Waldorf curriculum in a warm and giving community where so many individuals contribute to the life of the school.
One of those special individuals–a father of 4 girls, a leader in volunteerism, and a generous supporter of The Waldorf Fund–recently provided a substantial gift to TWS, a donation which could have gone to any number of worthy organizations. With this gift came a challenge to the community to not let the gift be in vain. His belief and faith in TWS is strong, but he knows it takes a village of believers and the strong will of an entire community to create a gift that endures for future generations. If we all give to the best of our ability, we will reach our community goals for TWS, ensuring that every year for the school is the best year yet.
To that end, we ask you to join us in making a gift to the 2019-2020 Waldorf Fund Annual Giving Campaign. Your generosity has an immediate impact on our school and our children. In addition, this year, 10% of what is raised will go to funding an early childhood playground improvement. Gifts to the Waldorf Fund also support teachers’ salaries, and provide students with meaningful experiences that last a lifetime.
Each year we strive for 100% participation from our families, faculty and board, and our extended community. All donations, regardless of amount, are received with heartfelt gratitude. Every child matters. Every family matters. Every gift matters.
Goals: $60,000 and 100% participation
Like all independent schools, Tucson Waldorf School relies on charitable giving to ensure our children continue to experience a life-affirming Waldorf Education in a well-tended and beautiful environment. Our financial strength is dependent upon the participation of all members of this community. 100% community participation is what we strive for and any size gift helps us reach our goal. Your participation generates enthusiasm and is a statement of solidarity for others. The percentage of participation by families, faculty/staff, and board members is a key indicator to corporate and foundation donors of the level of support from those we serve. All gifts to Tucson Waldorf School are tax-deductible.
“We have much more power than perhaps we realize to direct our financial resources in ways that support, empower, and express what we believe in. It takes courage to direct the flow, but with each choice we invest in the world as we envision it.” – Lynne Twist
