The Annual Fund directly advances the School’s goals of instilling in our students Quaker values, a love of learning, and a commitment to serving others. In addition to developing tremendous intellectual curiosity and skills, Quaker education develops in students a desire to be kind, empathetic, and to stand up for justice. Whether taught at circle time in the Lower School, explored in the Playback Theatre, or experienced through travel to places such as Rwanda or Uruguay, these values remain defining qualities of our students’ experience.
These principles remain vibrant because our faculty and staff, generous donors, and volunteers invest deeply in this community with the belief that our students will, and that they must, be intelligent and empathetic leaders who will help make the world more just.
The world needs Quaker education.
The Annual Fund enables us to provide a Quaker education at the highest levels and will focus on two central priorities that are paramount to a successful 2015-2016 school year. These priorities include:
- Financial Aid for access and affordability for the full Sidwell Friends experience
- Faculty Professional Development opportunities that will influence the student experience
Thank you for the friendship and generosity you continue to share with this community.
