Fundraising and Support

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

Tara Redwood School is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.

The school’s most important vision at the moment is to have the K-Elementary classes located near the Preschool classrooms, located in the Nisene Marks Forest amidst the  Redwood trees of Santa Cruz.
Your monetary support is what helps our non-profit continue its growth and offer innovative education to as many students as possible. The school tuition per student at Tara Redwood School annually is 10% to 20% higher than the tuition paid. We are committed to daily fundraising so to achieve 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.
You can securely donate via:
  • Checks
