Annual Fund


Tuition income alone does not cover Detroit Waldorf School’s operating costs. We rely on gifts to the Annual Fund to fulfill our mission and provide the highest quality educational experience for our students.

Contributions to the Annual Fund support teachers’ salaries and continuing education, classroom materials, and building improvements to our historic school—and help to keep tuition within reach for as many families as possible.

DWS seeks 100% participation in the Annual Fund from trustees, staff, faculty and DWS families and exceeds the national average for independent schools in all these categories. This achievement demonstrates to other potential contributors that our school community is strong and fully committed to achieving our mission.

Detroit Waldorf School is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, so every gift to the Annual Fund is 100% tax-deductible.
