Program 2

Lakota Waldorf School

We are currently serving 26 children, K through grade 2. (Our enrollment is limited by our facilities, but we have recently begun a capital campaign to raise funds for a new classroom and community building that will enable us to double enrollment.) We provide safe, reliable bus transportation; healthy snacks and lunches; and we are developing a new Lakota language curriculum, to be integrated with the regular Waldorf academic/social/practical curriculum, and that will address the decline in Lakota fluency in the community.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
