Support SFS

Thank you for your interest in supporting Sidwell Friends School.  Sidwell Friends, like all independent schools, depends upon the generosity of our community to sustain and advance the mission of the school. There are many ways that alumni, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends can take an active role in fostering the school’s mission and ensuring the best possible educational environment for students and faculty.

Sidwell Friends' fundraising initiatives consist of three ongoing programs:

  • The Annual Fund— provides essential revenue for the operating budget focusing on the key priorities of the school, which this year include Financial Aid and Faculty Professional Development. The Annual Fund is comprised of unrestricted and designated gifts in support of the operating budget donated by Alumni, Parents, Grandparents, Parents of Alumni and Friends to the school.
  • Friend to Friend—a series of events sponsored throughout the year that directly supports financial aid at Sidwell Friends School.
  • Major Gifts and Planned Giving— provide capital and endowment support to Sidwell Friends through outright gifts, bequests, annuities, and other planned giving vehicles.
