The Fund for Friends is the top fundraising priority for the School. We ask every member of the Friends School community (alumni, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, staff, and friends) to consider making their first gift in support of The Fund for Friends.
Your gift tells a story of:
Talented and dedicated teachers who mentor and guide our students every day. The Fund for Friends supports faculty compensation and benefits, which are the School’s largest expense each year.
A diverse community of learners. Friends provides $6.3 million for student financial assistance, ensuring that students from many backgrounds come together to grow and learn.
Bridging the gap. Because tuition does not cover the full cost of educating our children, generous contributions to The Fund for Friends and other revenue provide over 10% of the School’s operating costs.
Why is participation important?
Gifts toThe Fund for Friends supplement the School’s annual operating budget so that our students receive a transformative education, and allow teachers to create opportunities for our students that are above and beyond what tuition covers.
