Rise & Shine Annual Fund Drive

What is the Annual Fund?

The Waldorf School of Pittsburgh Annual Fund is driven by gifts from generous parents like you, along with the gifts of alumni, teachers, staff, parents of alumni, former staff, grandparents, and friends. Your Annual Fund donation makes an immediate impact on the quality of the school and directly benefits your child and other students.

Why does the Waldorf School of Pittsburgh have an Annual Fund?

Tuition alone does not cover the costs of an independent school education. Like other schools and colleges, the Waldorf School of Pittsburgh relies on gifts to help meet annual expenses and provide funding for financial aid, program expansion, and teacher salaries. This year, the Waldorf School of Pittsburgh awarded $600,000 in financial assistance. The annual fund helps us bridge this gap.

What else do I need to know?

This year’s Annual Fund launch is phased and will open on Wednesday, November 11th, and culminate in our traditional, socially distanced, lantern walk on Friday, November 13th. Our ‘ Rise & Shine’ theme is a symbol of our community’s steadfast light they have shone upon each other in the face of a year that presented many with so many challenges. We rise and we shine every day at Waldorf School of Pittsburgh and each brings a unique and inspiring light to the world. Whether we are in-person or together virtually, we are always a community. Every dollar counts and provides us with the resources we need to continue shining.

A successful Annual Fund, supported by a large percentage of the Waldorf community, directly contributes to the experience children have at WSP. It affirms and celebrates all that we have created and helps us to shine brightly in the world. It reflects our belief in the transformative power and beauty a Waldorf Education provides. If you have any questions, please contact Anne Fowler, Community Outreach and Development Coordinator,  (412) [phone redacted], EXT: 235 or Bob Roberson, Business Manager at [phone redacted] EXT:225.
