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.


First Annual May Faire Festival Saturday, May 4th!

Join us for a day of merriment and community celebration to welcome the spring!

With plenty of space to be creative and inclusive on this new campus, we are opening this event to the public for the first time. This will replace our former weekday May Fair event, creating new opportunities of many kinds. We encourage all families to find their favorite ways to participate! Please communicate with your student’s class Charter Foundation rep (ask, if you’re not sure who this is!) to learn more about how to support the event’s success.

More details to come, but here are some to start with:

  • Traditional May Pole Dancing, class by class? YES

Save The Date

Planning way ahead, we also invite you to SAVE THE DATE for a Fall, ADULT-ONLY evening fundraiser which will replace our former Spring Gala, on SATURDAY OCTOBER 5, 2019!

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.
