Annual Giving

When a small group of parents came together in 2012 to form Running River School, they simply wanted to fill a community need for an independent Waldorf-inspired school to serve their children. Little did they know that their bold idea would grow so swiftly and significantly. Our innovative school has grown from only five students to five grades in just five years!

Running River School is now attracting families from around the country to move to Sedona and become a part of our wonderful community. Our robust tuition assistance programs and Arizona tax credit program makes an independent education available to families of all income levels, and we are ready to expand to serve even more children in need of an individualized, holistic education.

This year we have an incredible opportunity. Unearthed Paints has pledged a matching donation of up to $8,000 for our school. But we must receive at least $8,000 in other donations by December 31st to receive the entirety of this generous gift. This is where you come in! Our families, through countless hours of volunteerism, have built a school from the ground up and now we need outside support to help take our school to the next level.

Please make a gift to support the growth of Running River School, as well as the incredible children and families we serve and the many more we will welcome over the coming years. Together we can build an independent school that meets the needs of Sedona families looking for a comprehensive education that honors and nurtures our children as the leaders of tomorrow.

We thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
