Kogod Family Foundation Receives 2017 Chandler Award

Congratulations to our great friends Robert P. and Arlene R. Kogod, whose family foundation was honored by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). The John R. Chandler Award, presented to the Kogods for their longtime support of independent schools, recognizes what Sidwell Friends School has long known: Students, teachers, and entire communities have been strengthened by Bob and Arlene’s passion for education. Other institutions whose work has been sustained by the Kogods include the SEED Foundation, co-founded by Eric Adler ’82 to establish a public boarding school for underserved children. We are grateful for having had the opportunity to nominate them.
