Walden Center & School plans a variety of fundraising projects and events. The main beneficiary of our fundraising efforts is our financial aid program. Financial aid ensures that the Walden community reflects the economic diversity of the greater East Bay community, which in turn benefits all members of our community. For more information about fundraising at Walden, please contact our office at 510-841-7248.

Walden Center & School is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our efforts are spread throughout the year and focus on community events, our annual giving fund and 100% participation drive, passive fundraising opportunities, and addition special projects.
