SUPPORTING THE DENVER WALDORF SCHOOL

The Denver Waldorf School awakens and inspires student’s critical thinking, emotional intelligence, and artistic expression, preparing them to bring relevant contributions to the world. Embracing the responsibility that we are stewards of humanity and the environment, by contributing to Annual Giving you will contribute to the stewardship of Waldorf Education, social renewal and strengthen our community.

The Denver Waldorf School Inspires…

As parents, teachers and staff at The Denver Waldorf School, we aspire to become a source of inspiration for the children in our community through our knowledge, actions and experience.

But more often, it is we, the adults, who are inspired by the children. Our wish to you this season is that you will be inspired to join us in supporting their continued growth.

Make a contribution today to The Denver Waldorf School and help us inspire.

Dining & Grocery Cards

DINING & GROCERY CARDS PROGRAM

Feed Your Family, Feed Your School

It simply doesn’t get any easier to support The Denver Waldorf School than to participate in our Feed Your Family, Feed Your School grocery and dining card program.

Anyone can be part of the program:  parents, extended family, neighbors and friends. The Denver Waldorf School receives 5% of the value of all grocery and dining cards sold through this program. If your family purchased $50 per week of grocery and/or dining cards, the result would be a $130 donation by the end of the year. If every family in the school participated at that level, our school would receive an additional $32,500 annually. Those outside the school are also encouraged to participate.

Other Ways to Give

OTHER WAYS TO GIVE

Time, Talent and Committee Volunteering

In order for the school to be a success, it requires the support of the entire community, and at The Denver Waldorf School there is always something going on. As students come back to school for another year, the seniors head out for a camping trip. During Thanksgiving Break the school is transformed into a winter wonderland. Throughout the year, parents and staff members stay up late discussing the future of DWS in one of the school’s many committees.

There are many volunteer opportunities at The Denver Waldorf School throughout the year. The Denver Waldorf community is comprised of generous, knowledgeable, and talented individuals; a valuable resource the school can use. As parents, teachers and staff, we aspire to become a source of inspiration for the children in our community through our knowledge, actions and experience.

Consider giving to The Denver Waldorf School with your time and talents.
