DVWS Giving Circle—Now through January 12


DVWS Giving Circle is a unique way to give charitable dollars to Da Vinci Waldorf School AND have a say in how those dollars are spent.

Our school, like any non-profit organization, needs support to achieve its mission—but we also want your involvement. A portion of donations received will be spent at the direction of Giving Circle members.

You are invited to invest your values and lend your voice to the future direction of Da Vinci Waldorf School.

Your gift at any level makes you, or a person of your choice, a voting member of the DVWS Giving Circle. Every gift is a voice—all members will be invited to share ideas about how to spend the Giving Circle fund. They will then meet and decide together how to allocate the dollars to best meet the school’s needs.

The Giving Circle decision-making event will be Saturday, February 10th.

Time and location T.B.D. You need not be present at the event to submit proposals for consideration, or even to vote (you may select a proxy to vote on your behalf.)

Last year’s Giving Circle brought ten projects to fruition.
The year before we realized six projects.
Do you have a vision?
  • the first $10,000 of the Giving Circle fund will go toward the operating budget; all remaining funds will be used as the Giving Circle members direct
  • all are invited—parents, teachers, staff, community members, associates, businesses, friends, and family—please spread the word
  • all gifts are tax-deductible
  • any proposal that is in line with the school’s mission and long-range plans will be considered
  • donors giving $500 or more will be recognized as Cornerstone Members
  • you can donate all at once, or set up monthly installments

How did we come up with this unusual program?
The Giving Circle process follows the Shared Gifting model developed by the Rudolf Steiner Social Finance group. Learn more about Shared Gifting here, by reading about last year’s event, proposals and results. The process is inspiring, informative and builds a community of collective action and shared trust.

Become a part of the collaborative spirit of giving at DVWS by making a gift or pledge by Friday, January 12th.

To make a gift or a pledge, choose the option that works best for you. Every gift is appreciated!

Thank you for considering our school for your gift dollars this year!
