Supporting Waldorf Inspired Education

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.
