Good Earth Charter School Start-up

$2,360 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 73 people in 39 months

Hi! We are Good Earth Charter School, a Waldorf-Methods Public School. Good Earth will be located at 800 Welsh Road, in Horsham, Pa. We submitted our charter application in November, had a wonderful hearing in December, and are currently waiting to hear back from the Hatboro-Horsham school district. 

We cannot do this without you! Your generous donations will go to the school's start-up costs. Charter schools do not receive goverment funding until after their doors are open. Help us be the change you want to see for your children!

Thank you!

Hi everyone!

Good Earth Charter School submitted the charter application on November 15th. We then busily prepared for our hearing, which took place on December 15th. It was a huge success and we are now in the waiting period for the charter. During this process, we had the excellent legal guidance of Jeffrey Stacey, of O'Donnell and Associates.

Please help us raise the $10,000 needed to cover our legal expenses. Every dollar counts as we strive towards our fall of 2016 opening!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our fundraising push in update #2! We DID hit our goal of a combined $2,500 within 24 hours and, in fact, surpassed it!

The last month has been busy as we have been searching far and wide to find the perfect property for our beautiful school. We are very excited to share that we believe we have found it on nearly eleven lush, wooded acres in the Hatboro-Horsham School District! We are actively seeking additional pre-enrollments from families within the Hatboro-Horsham School District as a robust home district interest will strengthen our charter application. If you live in this school district or know someone who does, please fill out or pass along our pre-enrollment form: http://www.goodearthcharter.org/pre-enrollment/

The fundraising continues as we are on our own in covering early start-up costs for professional services and marketing (there is no public funding provided to a charter school until after the school opens). Please consider making a contribution here at any time and in any amount!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to and attended our Community Yard Sale event on August 29th!

The event was a huge success. We sold many treasures and quite a few pitchers of fresh squeezed lemonade as potential Good Earth students frolicked with one another in the sunshine. It was a great day of community and, of course, fund raising.

The event brought in $2,063.00 towards our $2,500.00 goal! $2,500.00 is the amount needed to pay the initial legal fees required to submit the Good Earth Waldorf Charter application. We are very close to reaching this goal. Please make a contribution here so that we can reach this first fundraising milestone and proceed with the application process.
