Community Fundraising Events

Fundraising Events involve our entire community in raising funds for our school. They not only contribute greatly to our financial goals, they also strengthen our relationships with one another as a group. Without the support of dedicated parents, family, friends and other volunteers, these events would not be possible – or so enjoyable!

Help make our school stronger, and join us as a donor, volunteer, committee member or participant in one of our upcoming events: development@phillywaldorf.com

2014 WSP Auction Tickets/Admission

Last year's auction was a huge success all in the name of raising much-needed funds for our school.  We hope to see you again this year from 7 – 10 p.m. at The Brossman Center at Lutheran Theological Seminary, in downtown Mt Airy.  Reserve your babysitter now so you can party for a purpose and get to know some of the other families in our growing school community.

If you would like to donate an item, please download a form or contact development@phillywaldorf.com.  We are looking forward to this next opportunity to raise funds that are integral to the success of the school and have GREAT time doing so.

Quilt Raffle

PMQG-GroupshotEach year in the Fall and Spring, we sell raffle tickets for a unique, beautifully crafted, hand-made quilt. The Waldorf School of Philadelphia’s very own Eurythmy teacher Anna Ziegner is well known for creating gorgeous quilts that are destined to become heirlooms. In several recent years, our school has also received generously donated quilts from other Philadelphia based quilters, including a “community quilt” made by the talented members of The Philadelphia Modern Quilt Guild. Be sure to buy your tickets whenever you have the chance.

The Ode to JoyRide

The Ode to Joy Ride is The Waldorf School of Philadelphia's tribute to our friend Lewis, a man who did so much for, and meant so much to, our community. 

A lover of the arts, Lewis often entertained his guests with his recitations of Shakespeare and Friedrich Schiller. He had a special love for Schiller's poem, Ode to Joy, which also comprises the final movement in Beethoven's Symphony No. 9

Lewis duPont Smith was a fun-loving lover of life. A true renaissance man, he was a passionate student of history, art, music, literature and philosophy. He was a teacher, political organizer and philanthropist, and sat on the boards of Vox Ama Deus and The Waldorf School of Philadelphia. Lewis was an active alumnus of Avon Old Farms, and a passionate advocate for Waldorf education.

 

Our hope is to truly reflect Lewis' loving spirit in this important community fundraiser for our school's Annual Fund.

 

The first annual Ode to Joy Ride, held on Sunday, October 13, 2013, was enjoyed by our entire school community – students, parents, neighbors, teachers, and alumni. For photos of the ride visit our Facebook page. Thank you to the entire Smith Family, all of our volunteers, riders, and our generous sponsors!
