About the Foundation

Live Oak Foundation is the fundraising organization that supports Live Oak Charter School, a public Waldorf school in Petaluma, California. Live Oak Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to support the educational programs of Live Oak Charter School. Through the generosity of our community, Live Oak is able to offer a rich educational program that includes music, handwork, seasonal festivals, field trips and more.

All donations are voluntary, confidential, and tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law and IRS tax codes. Donations of cash, cash equivalents, and securities are accepted. Live Oak Foundation runs the Annual Fund and several other fundraisers including Live Oak Charter School’s annual auction in March. Donated funds become part of the Live Oak Support Grant that is given directly to the school to support essential programs.
