Do you have a dream for our school?
What do you think will help DVWS fulfill our mission?

The DVWS Giving Circle is an annual opportunity for community members to participate in deciding how donation dollars are distributed to make our dreams for the school a reality.

Your gift at any level allows you to become a member of the DVWS Giving Circle. 

Giving Circle Members are invited to submit proposals for projects and then decide how the dollars will be allocated amongst the submitted proposals.

The Giving Circle Event will be
Saturday, February 6, 2021,
whether in person or virtual.

You need not be present at the event to submit proposals for consideration nor to vote for your favorite proposals.

How did we come up with this unique program?

The Giving Circle process was inspired by the Shared Gifting model developed by the Rudolf Steiner Social Finance group. Learn more about Shared Gifting here.  The process is inspiring, informative and builds a community of collective action, mutually beneficial goals, and shared trust.

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


Many thanks to our Giving Circle donors 2015-2020!
