“As we were given a tour of the school, the students talked with great pride about what they had learned from Greek culture to physics. What struck me was the reverence and insight with which the older students described the work of the younger students. I instantly knew this was the place for my children.” – Parent of GBRSS student
The Steiner Fund is our school’s annual fund and as such provides critical financial resources for our operations each year. In this school year, our goal of $225,000 will fill the gap between tuition revenue and the annual cost of providing a Waldorf education in the Berkshires.
Our community supports the Steiner Fund through the annual holiday fair, the spring gala and individual gifts from parents, grandparents, past parent families, alumni and friends. We are grateful for this support.
Again this year, the GBRSS Parent Association is partnering with the Development Office to reach out to current parent families. Our joint goal is 100% participation. A similar effort will be made to faculty, staff and the Board of Trustees.
Last year, the Steiner Fund helped launch a teacher mentoring program to provide outstanding professional development to our faculty. It is continuing this year. In 2019, gifts to the Steiner Fund will support the hiring of three additional class assistants, renovation of bathroom facilities and funds to acquire a new school bus. If enough funds are available, we have plans for landscaping and campus beautification.
Due to the nature of IRS laws, tax exemptions, and associated liabilities there are no refunds on donations. Thank you for your continued support.
