With Gratitude

With the holidays upon us, this is the perfect time to express gratitude to the families, teachers, and staff at Taos Waldorf School.

We have chosen a different path, a unique, and bold way in which to work and more so, to educate our children.

This is a collaborative effort, grand in scale, and one only need look at the joy our children express in coming to school and the warmth in which they are receiving their education to reaffirm our decision to bring them, and ourselves, to this special place.

A Waldorf School does not exist for one, nor can it thrive on the work of one, or a few, but in fact it takes us all to give freely of our time, our passion, our love, and for this I am eternally grateful. Something radical, and wonderful, and enduring is happening at our little school, and this is because of you. For the efforts you put forth and dedication you embody, it is possible.

I am grateful to each one of you and honor the work you do for our collective whole.

Season’s Greetings and may your New Year bring blessings of light, love, happiness, and good health.

Yours in community~
Jenn Foley

Fall Giving Campaign

fall_giving1

Dear Friends of Taos Waldorf School,

We invite you to participate in our Fall Giving Campaign, which aims to raise $50,000.
TWS would like to thank our friends all over the world for continuing to support our school through your generous donations. Like other independent schools, we rely on philanthropy
to fufill our mission and cover any gaps in operating expenses. We know that you appreciate the high quality of the education that we provide, and we could not do it without your support.

Waldorf education aims to create independent thinkers, problem solvers, and leaders. Your contribution not only helps our children find success and fulfillment in their own lives, but it also prepares them to contribute their excellence to the dynamic world that they will face upon graduation.

With our eighteen year history, we have seen the real results of the education we provide. This inspires us to strive to make it accessible to as wide a spectrum of the community as possible. Given the financial reality of our small, rural community, two thirds of our students qualify for tuition assistance making your contribution vital to the survival of our school.

Teachers, staff and parents at Taos Waldorf School are busy shaping the building blocks for our community and our children’s future. It is through your generous support that we are able to do this with such a high degree of success, and we are sincerely grateful for every contribution that you are able to make.

Sincerely,
Sarah Beasley
President, Taos Waldorf School Board of Trustees

We deeply appreciate your support.
You can use our secure Paypal donation service to make a tax-deductible contribution today.
