Advertising, Sponsorships & Partnerships

Minnesota Waldorf School offers several options for promoting your business within our community. Our families are active patrons of the Twin Cities’ arts and business communities, with above average income and appreciation for the arts, eating out, crafts, culture, and all the unique opportunities our metro area has to offer. Minnesota Waldorf School draws families from St. Paul and surrounding suburbs, as well as South and Northeast Minneapolis and the Western suburbs. Our spring online auction enjoys nationwide exposure. Your ads and sponsorships allow you to promote your business to a highly desirable audience while supporting a worthwhile cause.

Advertising

Parent Directory “Pastel Pages”, Business Resource Section

The MWS Parent Directory includes a “Pastel Pages”, Business Resource Directory as a way to offer advertising to community and like-minded businesses in a publication that parents use frequently throughout the year. The Pastel Pages are on a different color paper so they’re easy to find.

If your business appeals to Waldorf families, or you would like to make your services known to our community in an uncluttered environment, this is a great opportunity. Simply fill out the Pastel Pages Advertising Form. The Pastel Pages are published in September.
