Ways to Give

As an independent school, DWS has the unique opportunity to offer our student-centered curriculum free from the restrictions of public education. As such, we could not have offered our community the options to experience in-person learning or learning from home during the 2020-21 school year without vital financial support. We are deeply grateful and overwhelmingly appreciative! 

As a nonprofit organization, we depend on the generosity of our community and the support of outside organizations each year. Parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends of DWS who support our fundraising efforts and volunteer enrich our school and make it possible for us to provide an education that fosters what it is to be human, cultivates lifelong curiosity, and inspires a love for the world.

Where to Give

The available funds to which you can give include:

  • Annual Fund Unrestricted donations to the Annual Fund allow us to support areas of the school in which funds are most needed.
  • Diversity & Inclusivity Scholarship The DWS Diversity and Inclusivity Scholarship supports students who racially, ethnically, culturally, or in other ways have been underrepresented at The Denver Waldorf School.
