City of Lakes Annual Fund 2020-21: Keep Our School Strong

Every year, the Annual Fund Campaign is critical for making up the difference between tuition and the actual cost of educating our students at City of Lakes Waldorf School. 

This year, in the face of a global pandemic, social division, and economic upheaval, we are counting on your generosity and strength to keep our school community thriving through this moment and prepared to serve families for generations to come. 

Your gift to the school supports a vibrant and joyful education for toddlers through grade eight in the heart of Minneapolis.  

We have been fortunate to be able to offer this Waldorf education with both in-person and distance learning in both our Whittier campus and our Loring Campus. 

While meeting the ongoing challenges of the world, we also are able to rely on our time-tested curriculum engaging head, heart, and hands—or thinking, feeling, and doing. Our knowledgeable faculty provides the work for deep learning and a commitment to social justice so that children can develop their self-knowledge as part of the larger community. 

Our unique relationship-based curriculum, delivered in nurturing environments, has relied on generous financial gifts from parents, alumni families, grandparents and special friends for more than 30 years. This support allows us to be the established, financially secure institution that we are today. 

Founded in 1988, the City of Lakes Waldorf School provides this robust education to more than 260  children in our toddler through grade eight programs. 

Why Give?

Tuition alone doesn’t cover the cost of educating students at our school. Gifts make up about 10 percent of the school’s budget. We depend on the Annual Fund to support compensation and benefits for our faculty and staff, for tuition assistance to keep families in the school, and to expand our technology so that we can provide stellar distance-learning environments. 

You can know that your gift keeps the school strong by allowing us to offer competitive wages to retain experienced faculty and staff and also to provide tuition assistance to families experiencing economic hardship.  

We rely on these tax-deductible gifts so that more students can benefit from Waldorf education. We could not do it without you.

Thank you.

We know that there are many good causes to support with your dollars. Thank you for your contribution to our school; we are deeply grateful.
