The purpose of the Housatonic Valley Waldorf® School, as with the original Waldorf School in Stuttgart, Germany is “to develop free human beings who, of themselves, are able to give purpose and direction to their lives.” Tomorrow’s problem-solvers need both tools to participate in a complex future and tools which will serve them personally—inner resources which will give a lifetime of contentment.
By original design, Waldorf schools are independent and therefore must be self-sustaining. Our many supporters give us much to be thankful for. Incredible community volunteers sustain many of our initiatives—from participating in clean-up days to serving as Class Parents, PTA liaisons and Board of Trustees members, and assisting with fundraising campaigns. Yet neither valuable practical deeds nor tuition dollars alone can sustain us. We also depend on monetary donations, small and large, to keep our school healthy.
Here are some ways to support HVWS:
Your donation will fund programs, operations, special projects, and the
tuition assistance fund. We make it easy to give. Just submit a credit
card payment through our Annual Appeal
page, or contact the office,
to make a monthly pledge that will make your dollars go further.
Every few years we go through an exciting growth phase which requires
the activation of all our resources to achieve a project’s success.
In the past, incredibly dedicated and generous friends of HVWS have
given to the Capital Campaign. When the call comes again, will you join
