Saltwater School Contributions

December 2013



Dear Families, Friends, Parents and Grandparents,                                                   

During the holiday season and this time of giving, many of us look for ways to make a difference. Waldorf Education, dedicated to the art of being human, helps youth become active creators of their own lives.  In this age of apathy and materialism, Waldorf Education’s practical idealism, applied with moral imagination, will help create a more humane and just world.
 
Saltwater School provides a comprehensive Waldorf Education that lays the foundations for curiosity, wonder, compassion and creativity, thereby fostering each child’s potential.  Each school day our students create beauty with their own two hands in handwork and woodwork.  They enhance their creativity through language arts projects, they challenge their minds through active mathematics and they develop a keen sense of rhythm through music and movement.  They work together to resolve conflict and they rise to the challenges offered through the outdoor-education program.  Waldorf students cultivate a lifelong love of learning.  They develop the intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual capacities to be individuals certain of their paths and to be of service to the world.
 
Saltwater School is asking you to make a contribution to strengthen the work of the school.  Waldorf Education is a true gift for families to give a child.  However, we also rely on the generous support of individuals and businesses to augment the tuition we receive from families and the partial government funding received by independent schools such as ours.    
 
Together we are creating a strong foundation for Saltwater School. Funds raised in this year's campaign will support the school by providing:

  • Capital for an expanded school facility
  • Tuition adjustment program, allowing families with financial need to attend our school at significantly reduced costs
  • Specialized program equipment 

Are you able to participate in this annual fundraising campaign?  We ask that you, as part of our school community, share this letter with extended family and friends who may be inspired to offer a gift to Saltwater School in this way.  We invite all families to participate at whatever level they are able.  All donations regardless of amount are deeply appreciated.  
 
We accept donations online via Canada Helps: https://www.canadahelps.org/dn/12270.  Online donations can be made with Visa, PayPal, and Debit - immediate and monthly donation options are available.  

Cheques made out to the Saltwater Education Society are also gratefully accepted and can be mailed or delivered to the school office.  Any donation over $20 will be issued a tax receipt.
 
On behalf of the present and future students of Saltwater School, we thank you for your ongoing support and the role(s) you play in the life of our school and community.
 
Sincerely,
The Saltwater Board of Directors:
Arlene, Michelle, Julie, Jen, Adam, Bobby, Marussia, Niels and Maren
