Social responsible investment

Ottawa Waldorf School
Kindergarten Expansion

Our pilot project was the Ottawa Waldorf School.
The Ottawa Waldorf School needed help with the expansion of a two classroom Kindergarten-Nursery wing. Vidar Foundation suggested to the school community that a pledge and loan guarantee group be formed.  The school was able to pay back with interest over three years the loans obtained against the pledges and guarantees.


La Grande Ourse

In 2006 the toy store, La Grande Ourse in Montreal, had to find a new home. The store provides a wide range of wooden and soft toys, workshops for parents and puppet shows for children, as well as children's books and anthroposophical literature. A two storey building was purchased with the help and support of the local community. The ground floor houses the store while the upper floor is rented out for various cultural activities. 

Sunnivue Farm

ROSE (Redeeming Our Soil Economically) is a land care association in London, Ontario, that took a 180 acre conventional farm out of land speculation in 1991Sunnivue Farm was converted to a biodynamic-organic agricultural and dairy farm. Their farm store offers a variety of products and presently the farm also has a herd of water buffalo. When living quarters needed to be enlarged, a dedicated group of people who actively support ROSE and Sunnivue and a loan from Vidar Foundation helped to transform a rough attic storage space into a comfortable living space for an additional farmer. 

Halton Waldorf School

Halton Waldorf School in Burlington, Ontario started a Kindergarten with 16 children in 1984. Every year a grade was added until the Grade school (1-8) was complete. In 2000 they opened their present beautiful building on a large forested property in Burlington. Vidar Foundation provided mortgage financing so the school could acquire land and build a green, sustainable designed building on a nearby property to house an adjunct campus and be the future home for a high school.
