The Charter Foundation – Supporting Public Waldorf Education

MARCH 11th-17th

It’s finally beginning! Welcome to our third annual Spring-A-Thon! This event enables all families to customize an activity that fits their children’s interests and can take place over the period of a whole week. Last year we raised over $15k for our school, so let’s see if we can improve that in Year 3!

There are prizes for each child who participates and even some high end gift cards for $150 each from Art & Soul of Sebastopol, Bananas at Large in Santa Rosa and Brotherhood Board Shop in Santa Rosa for our top three sponsorship earners. 

Students and families decide how much feels good to aim for in terms of sponsorships, gathered from supportive networks of friends and family who might like to help your child succeed in doing something they enjoy while supporting their school. (You may be surprised how many people want to!)

Our hope is that it will feel natural and accessible to anyone who has even the slightest interest in participating in this important work, at this critical time when state funding for charter schools is so shaky.

Let’s get empowered!

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.

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.
