The Shambhala School Annual Year-End Giving CampaignAnnual Year-End Giving Campaign

“Shambhala School is a treasure. The longer you stay here, the more miracles and happiness you experience. Every teacher we have met, student, and even parent here can be a light in your life, making you wiser, more compassionate, closer to nature, more creative, more passionate about life, more considerate of others, and understand more about love.”     – comment from a new school parent.

2020 has been full of new complexities in our world, which have impacted our communities, our homes, and our school. We are happy to say that we are rising to meet the challenges! Our entire school community has navigated the COVID-19 pandemic with exertion, discernment, innovation, and resilience. Last spring, we created and adapted to at-home learning, a whole new way of teaching and learning. Throughout the summer and fall we modified our in-school learning. The teachers have worked incredibly hard. The opportunity to be together again in September was joyful and celebratory. You could feel a collective sigh of relief even though there were still many unknowns. And through the fall and early winter, we are happy to say that our students have not just survived, they are thriving. This feels like a great accomplishment!

We ask you to consider offering a gift, small or large, towards this year-end campaign. We aim to raise a little more this year–$15,000-$20,000. This will strengthen our financial footing going into 2021, help maintain the health of our community, and support our hard working teachers.

Members of the Board of Directors and leadership are leading with a group donation. Collectively, they will match, dollar for dollar, the first $2,000 raised by December 28th. If you can, please offer a donation of any amount to help us access the matching funds, or offer a second matching gift to inspire more generosity!
