One of our key goals is to make a Waldorf education accessible to everyone, and so the Polaris School and Centre's financial model allows for families to contribute what they can to the school. Anyone who wishes to attend is welcome regardless of their financial means. This model is intimately connected with the desire to cultivate a vibrant community to be involved in and support the school. We hope you will become a part of this community.
With your generous donation, you can ensure that these children and many others receive an education that prepares them up for life. The allowance for wonder and discovery, rather than rushing and testing, allows the young person to develop many capacities in their inner life. They develop their values, their morality, their sense of judgment, their intellectual rigour and profound understanding. All of this brings about a deep trust and connection in all the facets of life and gives courage and confidence to enter their adult world.
Until the end of 2018, your donation will be matched! The Ottawa Waldorf School (OWS) has partnered with the Polaris School and Centre to bring Waldorf education to all those who seek it. We are working together on a Contribution Fund, which will help balance the school's finances and ensure the sustainability of the affordable to all financial model. To help launch the campaign, OWS has offered to match all donations received until the end of 2018, up to $40,000. This means the impact of your donation will be doubled!

Thank you in advance for your contribution. It means so much to have your support.
