Our bold plan for a bright future
After 25 years as a thriving Waldorf community, we have a unique opportunity to purchase our school and property and step boldly into the future as owners of our property.
The Trillium Rising campaign is calling on friends of our school – current and alumni parents, alumni, grandparents, school supporters, local businesses, and foundations – to support our school to build for the future.
As of January 2022 we have reached and exceeded our $1 million fundraising goal! We will continue to accept donations until March 2022 – every contribution counts to build the long-term resiliency of our school! As Trillium finds itself at this historic crossroads, your financial support is critical to the success of Trillium Rising – together, we can secure our current home, while creating opportunity for continued growth and expansion for the future.
You can support the Trillium Rising Campaign a few different ways!
You can make an outright charitable gift or contribution in support of the campaign, which is the immediate exchange of money or goods from a donor in the form of cash, cheque, credit card, or other forms of acceptable currency.
You can also make a gift of stock or other similar financial tools. If you would like to contribute by any of these methods, please contact us at [email protected].
You can also make a multi-year pledge which is a promise made by an individual to pay a specified amount over a set period of time to a not for profit organization. For example, you might pledge $3,000 to be paid over three years, by installments of $1,000 per year.

However you choose to support the Trillium Rising Campaign, your contribution will be received with immense gratitude.
