Community Spirit Campaign


Why does The Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs ask us to give to the Community Spirit Fund?

The Community Spirit Fund provides money to help with the current year’s operating expenses. Gifts are necessary because tuition does not cover the costs of providing the education. This is the case for most private schools in the United States. When you give to the Community Spirit Fund, you help keep The Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs on a solid financial foundation.

How much should I give?

Gifts to the Community Spirit Fund range in amount from $100 to $100,000. Only you know the right amount to give, based on your unique circumstances. Your donation puts your values into action – if you believe in The Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs and want the school to thrive, the best way for you to help make that happen is to give to the Annual Campaign. Your gift to the Community Spirit Fund supports the people and programs that make The Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs so special: talented teachers, small classes, a nurturing curriculum and a beautiful physical environment.

Can I make monthly payments?

A monthly payment option is available that allows you to pay your gift over any number of months you choose. This is a great way to maximize your gift – for some, one payment of $1,000 may be out of the question, while 10 monthly payments of $100 may be quite possible. Of course, you may still choose to make your contribution in a single payment.


Gifts to the Community Spirit Fund may be restricted for use.
