Giving

At the Vancouver Waldorf School, we strive to support the evolution of community-minded and socially-responsible graduates. We thank our rich and diverse community for supporting this vision by setting such a wonderful example of commitment, respect, and kindness. Whether you contribute a financial gift, your time, donations in-kind, knowledge philanthropy, or you participate in our ongoing fundraising initiatives, like the Grocery Card program, Spirit Wear fundraiser, or the Grade 12 Service Trip fundraisers, every individual contribution is deeply appreciated. Your support helps our School to fulfil our mission to provide an education based on the understanding of individual human development that fosters imagination, responsibility and a sense of truth. Complete information about each of these programs is accessed from the links below.

Grocery Cards and SPUD

There are two ways to support our school through grocery fundraising:

  • Purchase Grocery Cards from the school at face value and get face value at the retailers. The school makes money by buying grocery cards in bulk and receiving discounts from the stores (between 2- 10%). Cards are available for pick-up at the school twice a month.

There are a number of different ways to support our school through grocery fundraising all of which cost you no more than you would normally pay for groceries.

  1. Purchase pre-loaded gift cards from the school
    Supporters purchase gift cards from the school at face value and get face value at the retailers. That is, you spend nothing more than you would normally spend, paying with gift cards rather than your cash, debit or credit card.
    The school makes money by buying the gift cards in bulk and receiving discounts from the stores (between 2- 10%).
    Cards are available for pick-up monthly.
  2. Purchase gift cards for reloading in store
    Some stores require the purchase of only one gift card and then any amount you load and reload on that card in their store will go towards raising funds for our school.
  3. Purchase fundraising produce boxes from SPUD to earn 25% for the school
    We have also teamed up with SPUD.ca to offer organic produce boxes delivered directly to your home or office.
    Please see www.vws.ca/giving/spud-fundraising for more detail.
