Support Susquehanna Waldorf School

SWS grows and blossoms through the support of our community and tireless fundraising by our families and faculty. From strengthening our operating budget to funding class trips, supplies, faculty development, salaries and tuition assistance, fundraising plays a vital role in ensuring the school’s mission can be fulfilled. However you choose to give, your support enables SWS to offer a Waldorf journey to students who will become tomorrow’s leaders, innovators, builders, and thinkers. We are so grateful. Thank you!

SWS Fundraising Events

The Susquehanna Waldorf School has evolved into a remarkable institution due in part to growing charitable support from parents, grandparents, alumni families, trustees, friends and foundations. Such generosity supports the school’s mission by providing the resources for program and student needs, faculty purposes, tuition assistance and community interests.

Auction & Gala

Join us for the school’s largest annual fundraiser! The event will feature scores of items from local artisans and businesses, as well as unique group experiences and hand-crafted live auction items from each grade. Proceeds help support the school and the continuing mission of providing quality Waldorf education. Check back soon for details on the 2021 Auction and Gala.

Winter Fair

A celebrated tradition at Susquehanna Waldorf, our beloved school magically transforms into a seasonal gem as parents create this event anew each year.  The fair raises money in support of our school while bringing people together in celebration. Simultaneously our community reaches out to the greater community providing donations for a worthy cause. With great anticipation we look forward to the first weekend each December in sharing this event with one another and you, do join us!

This year we’ll be offering our annual Winter Fair Silent Auction all online. You can buy handmade wreaths, student-made ornaments, make a donation, bid in our Silent Auction and learn more about our mission.

The Silent Auction begins 12:00 AM November 27, 2020 and is open until 5:00 PM December 6, 2020.

Thank you for supporting our school and our goals!
