Community Supported Education

As a chartered public school, Gathering Waters receives per pupil reimbursement from the State of New Hampshire each year. However, we rely on the generosity of our community to support the broad scope of our programs and a significant amount of annual fundraising is needed to sustain the school.

It is thanks to a high level of volunteering, that we are in a position to actualize the mission and vision of the school.  Our community of supporters, including individuals, parents, teachers, friends, and businesses, has provided critical financial support towards our start-up and ongoing costs. Please join us! Together we can realize the vision of Gathering Waters as a tuition-free elementary- middle- and high school, accessible to all, guided by the principles of Public Waldorf Education.

Gathering Waters is a 501(c)(3) organization and all donations may be tax deductible.

The power of the group, the love and support towards the whole by many enables us to create something bigger than any one of us. Whether one can offer $5, $50, $500 or $5000, we are all participating in the foundation and future health of Gathering Waters.

Gathering Waters is opening in the fall with 250 students! 

Educational choice is a key motivating factor that leads to regional growth and helps to sustain a thriving community. For local businesses, this is a wonderful opportunity to support the founding of a new charter school--located in the heart of Keene and already attracting families near and far. 

Local Keene businesses such as Montshire Pediatric Dentistry, Hamshaw Lumber, and Brewbakers are leading the way in contributing to these important start-up needs.

Please consider joining us as a Founding Business Partner with a gift by September 8, 2021!  Your gift will be recognized and your support will afford opportunities for partnership with our growing community of families.  Help our school to educate and inspire hundreds of children growing up in the Monadnock region.
