👏 Great job, Springers! 👏

Our students and their sponsors raised $21,015.62!!!

We had our greatest number of students participate this year showing their support through reading (one student’s activity was reading while doing the splits ☺️), drawing, cartwheels, rock climbing, riding their bikes, writing short stories, practicing magic, and writing songs. The efforts and ideas were abundant and showcased the vast skill sets our students have.

From the deepest well, we give our thanks to each participating student and family member who helped them achieve their goal.

Our Mission

The Charter Foundation is the fundraising organization for Sebastopol Charter School, a Public Waldorf charter school in Sebastopol, California. Established by the school’s founders in 1998, the Foundation is charged with the mission of establishing and supporting a permanent, Public Waldorf charter school. Since that time the Charter Foundation has provided facilities for the School, bolstered teacher salaries and student programming, while also saving for the acquisition and construction of our unified school site.

The primary fundraising vehicle of the Foundation is the parent Pledge Program. The Foundation also manages varying other fundraising events throughout the year.

The Charter Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Federal Tax ID # 94-3314538.

The Charter Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public nonprofit corporation. We use the funds we raise to cover the gap in expenses between what the state provides and what it costs to maintain our school’s facilities, hire high quality faculty, and implement the meaningful Waldorf programming that makes up our curriculum.
