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 North American Roots Festival. 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) 583-5529 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Box Tops for Education – Collect box tops from participating brands to earn 10 cents each for our school. A collection bin is in the front office. You can also download the app, scan your receipts and earn money for Minnesota Waldorf School. Instructions can be found at their website www.boxtops4education.com as well as on the app.
Cartridge World’s Ink Cartridge Recycling Program – Cartridge World pays us for each empty ink cartridge we collect. Recycle yours from home and work in the bin in the Parent Lounge.
Donate Airline Miles & Hotel and Rental Car Points
Every year our teachers fly to various Waldorf teacher training schools to continue their Waldorf teacher training and enhance their skills. If you have extra airline miles to donate, please contact our Business Manager at (651) 395-7073 or email@example.com.
