Fundraising and Support

Empowering children to make a positive difference in the world is Tara Redwood School’s mission but one that needs 100% supTara school children with globeport from generous donors.

About 75% of school funds are currently met, but Tara needs all of 100% to meet school expenses. We thrive to offer special programs and student enrichment activities, we want to increase our school faculty, we want to continue to offer excellent school scholarships and supplies to families who desire to attend Tara Redwood but need financial assistance.

In addition to the school’s necessities,
Tara’s foremost important vision is to have the K-Elementary classes re-located adjacent to the Preschool classrooms, located in the Nisene Marks Forest amidst the  Redwood trees of Santa Cruz.
To make our move happen, we need to meet many expenses.
Your monetary support is what helps our non-profit continue its growth and offer innovative education to as many students as possible.
For these reasons, we are committed to monthly fundraising and we depend on our greater community to meet our mission.
Please consider making a donation to fund our school and be a part of  a great campus. Tara Redwood School provides a comprehensive educational program. Not only do we strive to help children discover the joy of learning, we also provide a foundation for the emotional and inner development of each child through our Creating Compassionate Cultures program.
