THE FUND FOR FRIENDS & SENIOR FUND

The Fund for Friends, our annual fund, provides the foundation for philanthropy at Friends. Gifts provide essential support during the current school year for the School's operating budget, contributing about 7% on an annual basis. Gifts to the Fund help provide for financial aid, respectful faculty salaries, athletics, performing arts, technology and more, which bolster our mission.

The Fund in 2018-19 raised $2,587,952 with 82% parent participation, 16% from alumni and 70% from faculty and staff. 

 

We are grateful to the donors, volunteers and advocates of the School who recognize the importance of their support in creating an unparalleled learning environment.
