Recently, donations to the capital fund built a shelter for our new outdoor bread oven while contributions to the endowment fund supported tuition assistance to ensure our student body reflects the diverse composition of the community around us. Whether you direct your gift to the capital fund or the endowment, you can be assured that your donation is used for enhancing the student experience, not supporting operating costs.

Each gift, whether large or or modest, makes an impact and we are grateful for your support.

For your convenience, you may donate online through CanadaHelps.org which deducts a small percentage for the transaction, or you may give directly to the school with a cheque or credit card.

 Independent schools across Canada rely on donations to support a range of school initiatives.   While many of these schools require donations of volunteer time and/or money in addition to tuition, TWS respects that families are unique and will give generously according to their means.

In addition to cash donations, you may also donate through:

A Gift of Securities

Donating a gift of stock or mutual funds that you have owned for more than a year may provide tax benefits. Consult your tax advisor as these gifts can be the most tax-efficient way to make a charitable donation. In most cases, you will receive a charitable donation receipt for the full market value of the stock while not incurring capital gains taxes.

A Gift of Life Insurance

A thoughtful and generous way to make an impact simply by naming Toronto Waldorf School as a beneficiary or donating the life insurance policy to TWS. Often, you benefit by receiving a charitable tax receipt for the lesser of the cash value of the policy or the total premiums paid. Your tax advisor can assist in the most optimal strategy for you.

A Will Bequest

Naming the Toronto Waldorf School in your will or trust can help create a lasting legacy and help the school achieve continue to thrive into the future. Naming the Toronto Waldorf School as the direct beneficiary of a specific amount of money, or of specific assets, or of a portion of your estate can allow your estate to take a charitable tax deduction for the full amount of your gift.
