The Chicago Waldorf School Annual Fund

The Annual Fund supports a curriculum and programs that you won’t find at other schools including an unparalleled teacher/student relationship; six expert educators per class; outdoor education and travel; Eurythmy; robust music education; and gardening. Each year, Chicago Waldorf School celebrates more than 20 festivals; fields 13 sports teams; and performs many service hours for the community. These are just a few examples of the ways our students receive a rich and broad education each day at Chicago Waldorf School.
