Everyday Heroes

At Sidwell Friends, our teachers are heroes every day.

Your philanthropic support makes this remarkable community possible. Gifts to the Annual Fund have a direct effect on the classroom by providing for faculty professional development and supporting student financial aid.

Here are some examples of what your gift can do:

  • A gift of $200 makes it possible for a student receiving financial aid to have internet access at home for two months.
  • A gift of $300 provides technology training for a teacher seeking to integrate new media into the curriculum.
  • A gift of $400 enables a student to rent a musical instrument for the school year.
  • A gift of $500 allows student athletes in need to have the proper equipment to excel on the field.

Support our Everyday Heroes by making a gift or pledge to the Annual Fund today.

Thank you for making Sidwell Friends a priority in your philanthropy.
