WWS Campaign Brocher

With the signing of a 30-year lease with Montgomery County for its Sangamore Road campus in June of 2012, we have an extraordinary opportunity, and clear obligation to make capital improvements to our building for the benefit of current and future generations of WWS students.

On November 9, 2013, the Washington Waldorf School publicly launched its $4.4 million BUILD OUR VISION campaign and announced that over $2.5 million had already been committed! The campaign plan called for $4.4 million to be raised in cash and pledges by June 30, 2015, with pledges extending until December 31, 2017. Meeting our campaign goal benchmarks allowed us to commence construction this spring. We hope you will visit us this fall to see the transformation in person!

The goals of the Build Our Vision capital campaign are focused on completing building improvements required by the terms of our 30-year lease:

  • Replace HVAC system
  • Install new insulated roof
  • Replace existing windows
  • Upgrade electrical systems
  • Upgrade lighting systems, fire safety systems and replace existing ceilings
  • Add a new entrance hall

The quality of volunteer spirit and determination, and the gifts that helped us reach over $4.8 million in pledged gifts for this effort, clearly demonstrate that WWS is absolutely ready to step towards its even brighter future. We have had success in this endeavor only with the help and participation of all of our extended community members – including alumni, parents of alumni, faculty, former faculty, friends, and extended families. Thank you!

The Capital Campaign Co-Chairs and Development Committee extend their heartfelt appreciation and thanks to all who have contributed to the campaign. We also extend our deep gratitude to our parent, alumni and parents of alumni volunteers who gave hundreds of hours to personally meet with members of our community to gain their support of our campaign, as well as time in strategic planning, meetings, and letter writing. Your support of this endeavor benefits our school and future generations of WWS students.
