|Support Waldorf Curriculum at Carver
State funds, which have covered the cost of Main Lesson and
other Waldorf curriculum and supplies at Carver in the past, are no
longer available. The GWC Guild hopes to raise the $24,000 needed to
support Carver for the 2017-18 school year. Our goal is to raise $125
per student, but the Guild realizes each family's ability to give is
different and all levels of support are appreciated. Use the donation
button below, drop off checks made out to GWC Guild in the office or, if
you're a state employee, consider choosing Carver during the United Way
campaign (see information below).
