Building Our Future Capital Campaign

Building Our Future
Capital Campaign

In an effort to expand space for full programming as well as to increase tuition revenue and sustainability, River Valley Waldorf School has initiated the Building Our Future Capital Campaign. By being responsible caretakers of our institution, including its building and grounds, the current leadership wishes to pay forward the gift left to us by our founders by leaving behind a school with a bright future.

After identifying the need for additional space and the support of the school community to pursue capital improvements, River Valley Waldorf School embarked upon the Building our Future Capital Campaign. Needing to raise $2,000,000, the campaign got underway in the fall of 2014 with a Leadership Phase that gathered support and pledges from our board of trustees, faculty and administration as well as an incredible lead gift from Bader Philanthropies. Capital Improvements have already begun but we continue to need the support and commitment of everyone in our school community to make this campaign a success.

When the campaign and improvements are completed, we will have right-sized our school building to include full size classrooms for all Early Childhood and Grade School classes, doubled the size of our All Purpose Room and increased the space for a full complement of programming that meets the needs of our curriculum that are critical to the Waldorf experience that River Valley provides to its community.

We can make this vision a reality, but we can only do it with your help. With any pledge of support spread out over 3-5 years, we can help you find a way to make a donation that works for you. Do you want to make a pledge but have questions about the campaign? We would love to meet with you to discuss your questions and your pledge. Contact Louanne Willard at

Pledges of financial support are essential, but the school also needs your help in other ways. Do you know someone outside the community who would support the campaign?
Do you work for an employer who would match a pledge of support?

Thank you for your support!
