Annual Giving Fund
The World Family School is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that relies on the generosity of its parents, friends, and the larger community to support its annual operating budget. Our mission is to develop the capacity in our students to bring creativity of thought and wisdom of the heart into the world. By contributing to our Annual Giving Fund you contribute to that mission, to bringing K-8 Waldorf education to Bozeman, and to strengthening our community.
Tuition and fees cover about 70% of the annual operating expenses of the school, and the purpose of our Annual Giving Fund is to help bridge this gap. We design our own programs and curriculum, operate without financial support from federal or state government agencies, and are self-governed. Unlike public schools, which are funded by tax dollars, independent schools rely solely upon tuition revenues and philanthropic gifts to meet operating and capital expenses.
Each year, parents, grandparents, faculty, directors, business associates and neighbors impact the lives of our students by contributing to our Annual Giving Fund. Please join us as we strive to assure the Annual Giving Fund becomes a solid foundation upon which to build the future of our school by making a tax deductible contribution today.

For the 2017-2018 School year your contributions will Fund:
- Teacher salaries
- Funding for teacher trainings
- Improvement of our garden space
- Classroom and facility enhancements
- Expansion of an operational contingency fund
- Expansion of the Scholarship Program
Our primary goal for this year’s Annual Giving Fund is 100% participation of our school community!
“Though you may have little, give of that, for giving provides you everything.” There is no contribution that is too small. The school’s financial strength is dependent upon the participation of all of its members and greater community. Your participation generates enthusiasm and allows for every single one of us to have a stake in our greater future. Please keep in mind that many employers match charitable contributions made by their employees, which increases the impact of your gift without cost to you.
We are deeply grateful for the opportunity to provide Waldorf education to the children of Bozeman and surrounding towns. Your generosity will touch our school. Your donation and support of our students means the world to us. Thank you.
