The Charter Foundation – Supporting Public Waldorf Education

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.

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

Browse the our auction at

Share the link far and wide with your family and friends and on social media!

Participate in the Donor Match Program Here. 

There is still plenty of time to support the Auction in this way, allowing us to entice school-aligned businesses to donate generous goods or services we know we can auction off. It is also a great way to SUPPORT and PARTNER with our local businesses. For those who do not have an item to donate, this option is a great way to participate in the procurement of auction items.

Donate an Item – Each family’s donation really counts, whether lovingly homemade, carefully procured or graciously given. 

Some ideas from years past: 

  • A homemade meal prepared and delivered to the winning bidder
  • A homemade “Winter Break Crafting Kit” for kids
  • Tickets to a Giants or Warriors game
  • 3 night stay at a family home

✨ Please submit donations by Tuesday, Nov. 28th, 2023.✨ 

💌  You can drop an item off in the School Office during office hours. We have a bin labeled and located on the wooden bench. Please make sure to fill out the Auction Donation Form. BEFORE dropping off. Be sure to include your name with the item you are dropping off so that we can link the two together.
