Fundraising and Volunteers
Tuition and fees account for roughly 90% of the total operating budget at the Waldorf School of Cape Cod. The remainder is raised through direct contributions and special fundraising activities.
- Gifts to Annual Giving: Monies gifted through Annual Giving supplement tuition to support educational programs in the school. Contributions have typically ranged from $50 to $10,000.
- Fundraising Events: Our November Holiday Faire and Annual Fundraiser in the spring offer many opportunities to contribute time, goods, and services to deepen relationships by working with fellow parents and teachers. Without every family’s commitment the event would not be possible. Other fundraising initiatives are also coordinated by the school.
- Volunteer and Community Service Opportunities: In addition to fundraising events, parents and teachers support the school by community service and volunteering for many other tasks. Periodically, parents are surveyed to help the school match interests, skills, and availability with the opportunities for meaningful volunteer work. Prior to enrollment, the Enrollment Director and/or the Administrator will have a conversation with you about these community building opportunities.
