This is a yearly appeal for donations to support the current operations of the school. All donations to the Annual Fund help support the day-to-day life of every student and teacher by supporting a variety of programs at Friends’, including: academics, staff development, special guests, field trips, events, and our sliding scale tuition and financial aid. The Annual Fund begins each year on July 1 and ends on June 30.
Each year, a team of parent volunteers work together to put on an Auction in the spring. The proceeds from the auction go toward the school’s operating budget, and help pay for tuition support, classroom materials, technology, and teacher salaries and benefits.
The Endowment Fund
The Friends' School Endowment Fund can be compared to a savings account or other financial asset that generates income through wise investment of the principal. The income generated from the endowment will be used each year to support school priorities such as teacher salaries, staff development, and student programs, thus relieving pressure for tuition increases. Donations to the Endowment Fund are welcome and much appreciated. Please contact Caroline Landry at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-499-1999 ext. 263.
