When we give our time, money, and effort, but even more so, our willingness, we model in the world what it means to be in community.
At Whatcom Hills, we are so fortunate to have a legacy of deeply generous parents and benefactors who have seen the results of a Waldorf education. Our children are taught in an artistic, loving, and humane way to think critically about a wide range of academic subjects, and as such, go on to reflect real care and compassion into the greater world. Together, our social giving is an affirmation of the sanctity of childhood, and the belief that education is an art form worth supporting.
In 1986, Whatcom Hills was just an idea, but because of all the selfless giving past and present, we have been able to develop our campus, grow our programs, and steadily increase teacher salaries. As we look towards the future in imaginative ways, we invite you to support our teachers, our children, our campus, and our whole community.
Like a ripple on a pond, your act of generosity will be felt in the future in powerful ways you may never know.
We greatly appreciate your donation and thank you for helping us to awaken the joy of learning for the children of Whatcom Hills Waldorf School.
When we plant a tree, we don’t plant it for ourselves but for our children

Annual Gala Celebration & Benefit Auction
The annual gala celebration and benefit auction is a major fundraising and social event for the parents, faculty, friends, and staff of our school. It provides a great opportunity to include friends and family outside the school community. We are excitedly planning for an in-person event this year!
Typically around 150-200 people attend this festive occasion which always has a fun theme and is held off campus. It is usually scheduled in the spring, and typically includes a sit-down dinner and after-dinner dancing. This event is made possible by everyone working together with the support of our generous sponsors. If you would like to be involved, or sponsor our event please let us know, and if you would like to attend, tickets can be found here in the spring.
Where your money goes to help support our school
Your generous support enables us:
- close the gap between tuition revenue and operating expenses.
- recruit and retain talented and dedicated Waldorf teachers.
- provide financial assistance to families in need.
- offer a full Waldorf Education from Parent & Child classes through Eighth Grade.
As with all independent schools, we rely on donations to cover the real cost of educating our students, as tuition only covers about 85% of our annual operating expenses.
Whatcom Hills Waldorf School is a Section 501(C)(3) non-profit corporation. Donations and contributions are tax deductible.
