As an innovative Independent School, offering a very different choice in education,
we depend on sponsorship to keep the school affordable and accessible.
Sponsoring the school can take many different forms,
all of which make a big difference to what the school can offer.

There are several sponsorship options, something to inspire everyone:

We are happy to help you set up a regular donation or discuss other funding opportunities with you.
We have our CHY number,
but time needs to pass before your donations can be tax deductible.

The simplest option of all:
Sponsor us with a €25 monthly subscription!
Your money will go to our ongoing expenses and allow for a School Meeting budget.
Our most pressing needs in order to expand the school are
subsidised student placements and fairer wages for staff:
Sponsor a Student
It is our aim and passion to make WCSS accessible for all who need and wish to avail of this type of education.
This means providing a Solidarity Fund to aid those families in need:
Sponsor a Student: €4,500 comes close to covering the cost for one student placement.
Anything above this helps to subsidise further placements, making our school accessible to all.
Solidarity Contribution: €2,250 would subsidise a placement in our lowest Membership Dues band for one year.
Fairer Staff Wages
WCSS's staff are dedicated to democratic, self-directed education. That's why they continue to work for minimum wage and/or are volunteering a huge amount of their hours since we opened. This is not sustainable, or fair.
Therefore we are looking for philanthropists to subsidise fairer staff wages:
€7,000 would allow us to raise one staff member's salary from minimum wage to a living wage - with numbers based on 2023.
Regular school trips are an important catalyst for experiential learning. Previous school trips have included an archaeology field trip, a visit to a local inventor and a day trip to Dingle .
€500 would help pay for one school trip - transport alone for a day can be €450!
We appreciate any and all donations and will acknowledge personally and publicly,
unless you wish your donation to remain anonymous.
