The Walden Fund

What is the Walden Fund? The Walden Fund supports faculty retention, tuition assistance, capital improvements, and daily operation of the school. 

How do I donate? Visit Walden's website and click the “Support” tab. You are also welcome to contribute via check. All donations are tax-deductible and will appear on your year-end giving statement from the school.

When can I donate? Anytime, but your gift will DOUBLE if made before June 30! 

What is the suggested donation? This is a personal decision, and we're aiming for 100% stakeholder participation. Donations of ANY amount are appreciated!

Why donate? To honor Mary McKeon's 37-year tenure and dedication to The Walden School!

EITC/OSTC Tax Credits

Your business can change a student's life by providing a qualifying contribution through either the EITC program (Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit) or the OSTC program (Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit).  In return, your business may receive tax credits of 75% for a one year gift or 90% for a two-year commitment.

Due to the popularity of the programs, you may want to apply to both programs on the first application date of JULY 1st.

For more information, please visit Pennsylvania's official EITC/OSTC website and contact Eve Welden at 

Matching Gifts

Employers will match gifts made by employees to non-profit organizations like The Walden School. Ask your company’s human resource department to provide more information about Matching Gifts and Walden can provide the form you need to increase the value of your contribution.

Planned Gifts

Planned giving is a mutually beneficial way to support Walden. You can donate to Walden without worrying about your own financial security by incorporating your donation as part of your estate planning. Planned gifts allow you to give more than you thought possible.

Donating Securities

Donating appreciated securities is an excellent way to support the Walden School.  Any long-term appreciated securities with unrealized gains may be donated to Walden and a tax deduction taken for the full fair market value of the securities, limited to 30% of the donor's adjusted gross income.  Because the securities are donated rather than sold, capital gain taxes do not apply.  Please see you financial advisor for specific details.
