We are all in!

This year’s Annual Support Campaign is a celebration of our power as a unified community, with a goal of 100% participation across current families, faculty and board.

It also honors the 100% that our faculty give to our students each day, and each year. Your contribution is an emblem of your commitment to Waldorf education and PWS; it also honors the amazing and dedicated teachers who help shape our children’s lives.

This week we celebrate our Grand Friends


Each child is surrounded by ripples of community, including parents, siblings, neighbors, teachers, classmates and extended family, including Grand Friends.

At PWS, we have long been thankful for the support that grandparents and special friends provide for the children in our school and have been honoring these golden members of our community with a celebration and visit each year, at Grand Friends Day.

In turn, we’ve recently heard from some of our grand friends and alumni grand friends about what they’ve appreciated at PWS over their many years here.  Turns out we’re a mutual admiration society. 🙂 

What is the Annual Support Campaign?

The Annual Support Campaign is Portland Waldorf School’s annual giving fundraiser which supports the school’s operating budget with unrestricted gifts that help fund our programs, students, and teachers.

The ASC provides across-the-board support for the school’s needs such as:

  • Classroom supplies, programs, trips
  • Faculty development and salaries
  • Tuition Adjustment

There are a number of ways to give…

Online: To make a credit card gift online over a secure browser, please click the button above.

By Check: Writing a personal check is a simple way to make a gift. Checks should be made out to Portland Waldorf School and mailed to:

Portland Waldorf School
2300 SE Harrison St
Milwaukie, OR 97222

Matching Gifts: Many employers match their employees’ charitable gifts to organizations. This is a wonderful way to double or even triple the size of your gift to PWS. For additional details about your employer’s matching gift program benefits and restrictions, it is often best to ask your human resources office.

Gifts of Stock: Some donors make gifts in the form of appreciated marketable securities. This is a simple and attractive method of giving because of the substantial tax advantages.

However you choose to give, we are so grateful! Thank you!
