Supporting Public Waldorf Education

The Charter Foundation is the fundraising organization for Sebastopol Charter School, a Public Waldorf 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, Public Waldorf charter school. Since that time the Charter Foundation has provided facilities for the School, bolstered teacher salaries and student programming, while also saving for the acquisition and construction of our unified school site.

The primary fundraising vehicle of the Foundation is the parent Pledge Program. The Foundation also manages varying other fundraising events throughout the year.

The Charter Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Federal Tax ID # 94-3314538.

As we inch closer to winter, the rain has greeted our new campus, graciously helping turn our construction-brown grounds to a beautiful and promising green. A beautiful rainbow appeared over the school recently, delighting all of the children with its colors and light as it formed a protective and hopeful half circle over our new campus. It was a sight to see, worthy of taking a moment to appreciate, and a fitting blessing for our new campus that has been a true labor of love by all of our school families for the past two decades.

The outside accountant’s review of the Foundation’s fiscal year 2018’s financial records and management has been completed by the independent auditors Goranson & Associates and is now available for download. As with prior year’s review, the review found no issues or items of concern.
