The Gala is crucial to the support of our financial aid and scholarship programs and also helps us meet our annual operating budget. We greatly appreciate our community, dedicated sponsors, donors, and volunteers who come together to make it possible for City Garden School to bring an outdoor experience inspired by Waldorf education to the children of mid-Missouri.

There are many ways to be involved with the gala. You may choose to be a gala sponsor and get a host of benefits such as VIP seating and advertising. Or you may want to underwrite a portion of the gala to ensure that all the proceeds of the gala go to directly benefit CGS students. Underwriting is 100% tax-deductible.

Your donation of auction items makes our silent and live auctions a success. All donors are recognized throughout the night and also in all advertising leading up to the event. No donation is too large or too small. The auction is a success because of its variety.

Examples of donations include:

  • items or gift certificates

  • use of a vacation home or dining experience

  • cash donations

Your name (or business name) will appear in our publications when you donate items or gifts certificates to be auctioned.


Sponsorship opportunities provide you (or your company) excellent exposure and benefits leading up to the gala and at the event.

Underwriters of a portion of the gala are recognized on the gala webpage, social media, and signage at the event. Underwriting is 100% tax deductible.
