Annual Benefit

Support Our School and Further Your Business

This is your chance to support the Waldorf School of Philadelphia and become a sponsor of our 2021 Annual Benefit, celebrating our school's 25th anniversary. For the last quarter century, Philly Waldorf has been committed to bringing a modern urban approach to Waldorf Education, and providing a warm and nurturing learning environment to the children of Philadelphia. We strive to keep our tuition as low as possible to make our school accessible, and we use donations from events like our Annual Benefit to make up the rest of our operating budget. We hope your business will take this opportunity to support our work. All proceeds support the students and faculty of the Waldorf School of Philadelphia. Click here for sponsor information.
