Fundraising Details

The Walden School School’s ongoing fundraising initiatives consist of the following programs:

Annual Fund- The annual fund makes a difference every year for every student by providing significant and immediate annual revenue to fund the school’s highest priorities.  As with all independent schools, the Annual Fund is a vital component of Walden’s financial stability, since tuition alone does not cover the cost of operating the school.  Each day, Walden students are challenged in the classroom, in the music room, in the art studio, and beyond—and Annual Fund makes this possible.

Endowment- All great schools including The Walden School rely on endowment funds to provide funds, over and above tuition, for extraordinary educational programs, financial aid, and faculty professional development.  Endowment funds provide ongoing income for the school with the option to create a lasting legacy for alumnae, faculty members, loved ones, or family members.

Planned Giving- Planned gifts are placed in the endowment fund to create a lasting legacy, providing income in perpetuity for the school. 

Spring Endowment Event- This event generates funds and fun each year for ongoing excellent educational programs. The Bid, Sip and Celebrate depends on the support of families, friends and faculty as volunteers, sponsors and attendees.
