Ways to Give to WSP

 

Annual Giving

Annual Fund contributions are essential to the day-to-day operations of the school, as tuition does not cover the full cost of a Waldorf education. This vibrant education depends upon your generous tax-deductible gifts to underwrite everyday expenses that make learning possible in the classroom. From the classroom itself, to the teacher in the classroom, and to the students' experiences, your gifts make a difference every day for every student. For our parents and employees, Annual Giving should be your number one priority when it comes to giving at WSP.  Click here to give to the WSP Annual Fund.

Check


Please make checks payable to "The Waldorf School of Princeton". You may send your gift to: The Waldorf School of Princeton, Development Office, 1062 Cherry Hill Road, Princeton, NJ 08540




Employer Match


Many employers will match donations made by their employees to non-profit organizations. This is an easy way to double, or even triple, your gift. Many local companies including Bristol Myer Squibb, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson currently offer this benefit. Check with your employer’s HR department to see if your company offers matching gifts




Gift of Securities


Gifts of securities can be made directly through the school’s broker at Merrill Lynch by calling 908-789-4324, or by contacting the broker of your choice. Please provide your broker with our DTC No. 5198 and Account No. 826-04A33. When you initiate a gift of securities, please contact development@princetonwaldorf.org, with specific details so that your gift will be properly credited.





Endowed Giving

The Waldorf School of Princeton gratefully accepts gifts of all sizes to our endowment funds. Contributions are permanently invested and the principal of these funds remains intact providing financial security and stability for our school now and in the future.

Legacy Program

How do you leave a legacy for a lifetime? How do you influence the life of a child? Through the deferred giving program at WSP, your generous spirit will continue to live through our remarkable children and school. Planned giving options include: bequests, insurance policies, charitable lead trusts, charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities and beneficiary designations.

In 2009 the school inaugurated The Michael Society, a society formed to honor individuals who have remembered the Waldorf School of Princeton in their estate plans. To register your name or to learn more about including a gift to WSP in your estate plan through a provision in your will, living trust, IRA, retirement plan, or insurance policy, please contact development@princetonwaldorf.org

Sponsorship Program

WSP is grateful to all past and present sponsors for supporting more than 30 years of Waldorf Education in New Jersey!

 

By increasing and integrating our sponsorship opportunities, we hope not only to enhance our programming and reach future fundraising goals, but to strengthen the connections between our school and the larger community. Our program also makes it easier for you to plan your participation throughout the year. As a WSP sponsor, your contribution benefits our school directly while connecting you to an audience who shares your values of community, sustainability, joyful learning, and arts integration. Our integrated platform heightens your visibility, while emphasizing your enthusiasm for this unique education.

In-Kind Donations

The school welcomes donations of products and services in addition to financial contributions. These may include tangible items such as furniture and equipment or needed services such as architectural design, painting and repairs, or design and printing services.
