Everyday Ways to Give

Supporting Minnesota Waldorf School can be as easy as starting your internet shopping with OneCause or bringing in printer cartridges from work. Here are some “Everyday Ways to Help MWS.”

Fundraising and Volunteerism

As is the norm in private schools, the actual cost to educate each child is not fully covered by tuition and fees. MWS can operate with this tuition schedule largely because of funds received from the voluntary, tax-deductible contributions of families and friends through our Annual Campaign. The volunteer efforts of our community also earn revenue for our school. These efforts include the Holiday Fair, School Store, Coffee Cart and Frolic Fundraiser and Dance Gala. Each adult in the family is asked to contribute 8 hours of volunteer time during each school year in support of these fundraisers. If you have any questions pertaining to fundraising, please contact our Development Director at (651) 395-7109‬ or development@mnwaldorf.org.

Shopping

Amazon Smile – If you shop using Amazon, it is possible for charitable organizations to benefit from your purchases via their Amazon Smile page. Select Minnesota Waldorf School and Amazon Smile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to our school. Recently, Amazon Smile made it easier to use its service on mobile devices. Instead of having to open up Amazon Smile in your phone or tablet’s browser and making your purchase that way, you can now turn on Amazon Smile in the settings of your Amazon app. Once that is turned on, your eligible purchases will automatically be applied as a donation.
