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.

Thank you for Digging Deeper for Sebastopol Charter School!

The Charter Foundation would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all that supported our school through a donation to our Dig Deeper Campaign. Our grand total at this point, with a special thanks to the Marcia Brady Tucker Foundation’s matching challenge grant, is $70,000! 

We continue to welcome SCS family donations. We will accept donations for this campaign until we meet our goal. We also invite you to come forth with suggestions as to how we might leverage our connections to those outside of our school community to generate the remaining $30,000.
