I am volunteering at my son's Waldorf inspired school here in NM to see if we can find any grants to help with Native American and/or Hispanic children's tuition for the school as well as grants to fund some of our classes....any ideas on where to look?
I don't know of any grants that are specifically for waldorf schools. There are a few foundations that provide grants to help children attend private schools, any variety of private schools. I know there is one such foundation here in Vermont.
One place to start is a public library. The librarian can help you connect with grant resources and give you information on how to do searches. There may be a grants resource center in NM which has specialized databases on foundations and help for writing grant applications: again, there is one in Vermont. You can look, for example, for foundations that specialize in providing grants to help out particular ethnic groups, or religious sects, or ?
I'm familiar with two waldorf connected programs that provide grants to waldorf schools. Neither of them do grants to individual families for scholarships.
