Community Giving Program
Historically, the Community Giving Program has contributed $120,000 to $150,000+ to our school’s budget. These donations have enabled us to provide a full, rich education for your child; programs such as music, art, movement, and world language. These offerings would not have been possible on the charter school funding from the State alone.
Stone Bridge School does not charge fees for enrollment and this program is not a fee for participation program. Our Community Giving Program has always been, and remains, a voluntary donation. Our 2016-17 Community Giving goal is $150,000. Participation in the Community Giving Program is not mandatory and your child’s enrollment will NOT be affected by our (my) participation in this program.
Community giving, however small, shows a united commitment when seeking grants. It lets benefactors know that we all stand behind a public Waldorf education. One dollar could yield one thousand!

In addition to the School’s Community Giving Program, Stone Bridge School Parent Council runs a variety of fundraising programs throughout the year to support Stone Bridge School.
The Grant Committee researches grant funding, matching available opportunities with the needs of our teachers, students, and the entire Stone Bridge community. The Committee assists with and oversees applications that are submitted in coordination with school administration.
If you know of possible grants, are interested in grant writing and submittal, or are in need of grant funds, please contact email@example.com
The Scrip Program is a set of Fundraising programs through which Stone Bridge School Parent Council generates funds from a variety of merchants based on a percentage of a families total purchases. Please visit our Scrip page to see a list of current programs.
Rainbow School Store
Through out the year PC offers special fundraisers for items that are relevant to our school community. These are usually small traditional merchandise fundraisers for items such as Waldorf Art Supplies, or Reusable Lunch Supplies where families may choose to purchase products and a percentage of each purchase is donated to the school. These offers are intended to be both a fundraising opportunity and resource to families. Go to the School Store page here to see current offers and resources.
Dine and Donate
Periodically through the year we arrange with a local restaurant or activity spot a special day in which that merchant will donate a percentage of its proceeds to Stone Bridge School when families dine or otherwise patronize that business. These are fun nights to socialize with other families away from the routine of school life. Look for announcements in the newsletter or on the calendar for the next Dine and Donate Event.
Official flyers can be found on the Dine and Donate page.
Have you seen this symbol on grocery or office supply packaging? Did you know that it is worth .10 for the school? Clip the Box Tops symbols and place them in the Box Tops Can at the mailboxes. Encourage your friends and family to do the same. It’s another easy way to earn money for our school. For more information including a list of products, click here.
Historically, Parent Council has annually put on Extravaganza and Enchanted Village Faire as the two main fundraising events. However, given the growing gap between State funding and the actual cost of our children’s Waldorf-inspired education, additional events have been added based on opportunity and parent initiative. Fundraising events are coordinated through Parent Council and their success depends on school-wide support and enthusiasm.

SBS partners with Willie Bird Turkeys for our Wings for Strings fundraiser. Each turkey sold generates a profit for the school as Willie Bird donates a portion of each pound sold back to the school.
