Why We Give. Hogan Family
From the moment we first arrived at the Moraine Farm campus seven years ago with our then-three-year-old daughter, we knew we had found something completely different than anything we had seen before. Waldorf had been recommended to us by a friend who knew our style of parenting and who also knew we were struggling to find a place that would complement it.
Walking into the nursery classroom on that very first day, we felt the warmth, the peace, and the quiet comfort of that space and immediately connected with it. We quickly realized that—from the wooden toys, the soft pastel colors, the natural materials, and delicious wafts of wholesome soup and bread, this was a place where everything was thoughtfully considered. After only one visit, we knew we had found a place where we could trust that our daughter’s childhood would be honored, where her innate intelligence as a human being would be respected, and where her spirit would be nourished.
We are happy to say, we were right on all accounts. (more…)

Why We Give from Chris Dowley & Laura Freysinger
Our son, Gavin, graduated from the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm in 2016. He is proficient in two foreign languages, plays violin in the school orchestra, plays two varsity sports, and maintains a grade point that lands him on “high honors” each semester. We credit his success to the process of learning that was his foundation here at the Waldorf School. It is not “what” he learned, but rather, how he learned it. It is not “academic rigor” that got him where he is, but rather the experiential environment and collaboration with his teachers and peers that won the day. Since then, natural curiosity and a steadfast work ethic have continued his success.
Why We Give: It’s Personal
This year on Giving Tuesday, I invite you to join me and my family in giving to the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm Fund.
When Paul and I returned with Alexander (then five) and Aylin (three) from our nine-year sailing circumnavigation of the globe, we looked for a school that would mirror the experiences to which they had been exposed during our life away. We sought an environment that would continue to nurture their innate curiosity, let them take risks, and allow them to learn through experiencing the world around them. We wanted a place where they would feel understood, heard, loved, respected, and supported. Finding and then joining this Waldorf community was a perfect fit.
