Dear Parents, Alumni Families, and Friends,

The New Amsterdam School, like virtually all non-profit independent schools, relies on a combination of tuition and fundraising revenue to support its daily operations. Our school relies heavily on the success of our community’s annual development efforts to achieve a balanced budget each year.

Charitable, tax-deductible gifts help us to minimize tuition increases, contribute to our tuition assistance program, support faculty professional development, and enable the school to thrive.

The New Amsterdam School raises money in several ways:

  • Annual Fund gifts, which are meant to be expended the year in which they are given, help support the general operating budget including our tuition assistance program.
  • Special events such as our annual holiday auction, spring fair and winter benefit also support our general operating budget.
  • The Campaign for the New Amsterdam School – in support of our growth into a pre-K through 8 grade school.

Our successful fundraising program is all possible due to our incredible community.  Faculty, parents, alumni families, and friends come together to make amazing things happen for our school.  Their generous donation of time, talent and financial resources enable us to provide a Waldorf –inspired curriculum and remain accessible to families of many different economic circumstances.  Community defines us and enables us to foster a new generation of thoughtful, socially responsible students, who will one day make our world a better place to live.

Please take a moment to reflect upon what this education means to you and your family and consider making a gift to The New Amsterdam School.  Your investment in Waldorf education is a demonstration of your belief in our children and your hope for our future. How can you give?


We welcome your tax-deductible donations throughout the year. Checks can be made out to “New Amsterdam School.” You may also give to the school directly with Paypal or by credit card using the link below.
