Annual Fund Campaign 2017-18

Click here to donate now.

Waldorf School of New Orleans is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, which means your gift is tax deductible. We greatly appreciate support from our community. There are several ways you can help.


This year we kick off our Annual Giving Campaign during Michaelmas, a time of strength and bravery in Waldorf Schools.  Your contributions support more than a private school education, it supports a cause and a movement in education happening around the world. 


The Waldorf School of New Orleans has grown from 5 students in 2000 to 122 students this year in nursery through 8th grade at two campuses.  Your gifts enable us to bring this unique education method to the deep south.  WSNO is the only Waldorf School in the state of Louisiana and we are honored to serve this community.   With this Season of Giving we are celebrating our school, and the freedom and joy of giving. 


Philanthropic Leadership Circle:  The Philanthropic Leadership Circle is a group of generous WSNO Annual Fund supporters passionate about the continued success of the Waldorf School of New Orleans who give a gift of $1,000 or more. 

Support at this level has tremendous impact, and your leadership gifts enable WSNO to make a difference.
