The Charter Foundation is the fundraising organization for Sebastopol Charter School, a public charter school in Sebastopol, California. Established by the school’s founders in 1996, the Foundation is charged with the mission of establishing and supporting a permanent, Waldorf-inspired Charter school. Since that time the Charter Foundation has provided a site and facilities for the School, bolstered teacher salaries and student programming, while also saving for the eventual acquisition of a unified school site.
The primary fundraising vehicle of the Foundation is the parent Pledge Program. The Foundation also manages a series of other fundraising events throughout the year, including the May Online Auction and Annual Gala, and electronic Scrip programs.
The Charter Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization.
On May 20 the Foundation and School made a joint presentation for the school community, with updates on the financial state of each entity, the status of our new campus project, and reports on fundraising efforts this past year. A PDF of the Spring 2016 Community Meeting presentation is available for download (35 mb).
