We are so grateful for all charitable donations to our school and we aim to make it as convenient as possible for you to support our mission. Like most independent, non-profit 501(c)3 schools, we rely on a combination of tuition and fundraising revenue to support our operations. Tuition and other fees cover about 90% of our costs.
Giving is easy; please select from the following options:
Gifts & Pledges
Direct gifts and pledges to the school are welcome throughout the year. Gifts may be made by mail, phone or online, with check (made payable to RSSAA) or credit card. The school's fiscal year ends June 30. Checks can be sent to: Rudolf Steiner School of Ann Arbor, 2230 Pontiac Trail, Ann Arbor, MI 48105.
Stocks, mutual funds or securities
Gifts of appreciated stocks, mutual funds or securities may offer significant tax advantages to you as a donor. Access our account number, brokerage name, DTC information and additional information below to work with your financial advisor to make a gift of appreciated assets. You may also contact Katrina Klaphake, Development Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-669-9394.
IRA Charitable Rollover
An IRA Charitable Rollover is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA payable to our school or other non-profit. They can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distributions (RMDs) and if you are over 70 1/2, this may keep your taxable income lower. Contact your IRA Administrator to make a distribution. You can use this sample letter to send to your IRA Administrator.
Donor Advised Fund (DAF)
A donor-advised fund is an account at a sponsoring organization, generally a public charity, where an individual can make a charitable gift to receive an immediate tax benefit and retain advisory privileges to disburse charitable gifts over time to various non-profits. Donate cash, stocks or non-publicly traded assets such as private business interests, cryptocurrency and private company stock to your DAF.
Taking advantage of your employer's matching gifts program helps Rudolf Steiner School of Ann Arbor considerably. Enclose your company's matching form with your gift. If you are not sure whether your company participates in this plan, the Development Office can find out and help you obtain the proper forms.
Additional Ways to Support
Annual Fund is a yearly request to members of the school community. Contributions support faculty professional development and tuition assistance. One-hundred percent participation by parents is our goal, which also encourages major donors to support our mission. When you consider your giving for the year, this important funding source for our school should be at the top of your list.
Capital campaigns raise significant funds for major institutional projects or programs in a specified period of time. The focus of the campaign begins through the strategic planning process and ultimately supports the mission of the school. The resulting project or program benefits the community in a transformative way.
