Ways to Give

The Camphill School’s life-sharing economic model, where long-term volunteers care for children and young adults enables us to keep our tuition lower than many other schools for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Even full tuition, however, cannot cover 100% of our costs. We depend on contributions from friends, parents, grandparents, other family members, corporations, and foundations to fulfill our mission.

A gift to The Camphill School makes a difference in the life of a student and these things possible:

  • Tuition assistance for students
  • General operations of the school
  • Maintenance and improvement of our homes, educational, and therapy buildings

The Camphill School is a 501(c)(3) organization. Our EIN is 23-1443766. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. You always should consult your attorney or tax/investment professional before making any kind of charitable contribution.

Each year, with help from volunteers, local businesses, and our community, The Camphill School hosts a festive evening to increase awareness of the work we do with children and youth and to raise funds in support of our mission.

Our signature fundraising event, the Camphill Gala, has raised over $3 million dollars since its inception. The Gala features dining, dancing, and auctions all in support of our students.

Individual volunteers typically commit to a regular schedule with a consistent assignment in our classrooms, houses, craft and handwork activities, or office. Volunteers must complete a volunteer application and obtain required clearances and pass background checks. 

Volunteer groups of a variety of sizes are welcome for outdoor projects such as path maintenance, gardening, mulching, and painting.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

LOVE TO COOK? We need your help! As our house parents, live-in volunteers, and employees focus their time and attention on the children, we need the help of local volunteers. One of our most fulfilling volunteer opportunities is cooking lunch for one of the children’s homes. This is a weekly commitment from September through June from 9:30-12:00.

LOVE TO SEW? Each year the Senior class performs a spring play. This year they’re performing a few scenes from The Sound of Music and need someone to donate their time and talent to making costumes.

LOVE TO GARDEN? Foxfield Flowers needs help with weeding, mowing, garden maintenance, and composting. If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, we would love your help!
