Projects Around the World

The money raised by you, is forwarded by your school to the Friends of Waldorf Education and from there the amount reaches the projects around the world at 100%. We take over the administrative costs so that not one cent is lost. You can either donate towards the general WOW-Day Fund or to one or more projects of your choice. A selection of projects, can be found on this page.

  • Through the general WOW-Day Fund we support projects that are in need of urgent assistance and have applied for funding. In this way we can also help smaller projects, which do not have a large donor base yet.
  • If you would like to support a specific project, you can inform us at any time, up to the time until your donation reaches us.

In addition, there is also the possibility to support other projects, if you have a personal relationship with them. Even in these cases we are happy to take over the forwarding of donations. Please talk to us so we can figure out the details of such individual cases.
