The Alice Birney Parent Guild is a nonprofit organization governed by parents. Teachers and administrators are also members of the Guild. The purpose of the Guild is to form a strong and nurturing community around Alice Birney students and to support the educational and social goals of the school. One of the Guild’s main functions is fundraising. While public funds from federal and state sources cover the school’s basic operating costs, specialty classes are funded entirely by the Guild. In addition to paying for the specialty programs, the Guild funds classroom and campus upgrades as well as Waldorf lesson materials.

Each year the Guild sponsors a variety of fundraising activities and supports school festivals including: the Annual Giving/Materials Donation Campaign, the Winter Faire, Knit-A-Thon, and Earth and Vine Dinner and Auction.

The Guild Steering Committee consists of the Executive Committee, Staff Liaisons, Committee Coordinators, Principal and one Parent Representative per class.
