A Letter from the Co-Chairs

Dear Friends,

We are excited to share with you this latest issue of Advancing Friends, the philanthropy newsletter of Sidwell Friends School. It’s always inspiring to read stories of how you are making a difference in the lives of Sidwell Friends students through your generosity—perhaps in ways you might not have imagined.

But this issue is special to us, because it features members of our community who are energiz ing the School’s comprehensive campaign through their giving and volunteerism.

You may already know that the School is in the early stages of its comprehensive campaign, where we are raising funds for two main purposes: to illuminate a brighter tomorrow for our students, and to build enduring financial strength for Sidwell Friends.

As co-chairs of the Campaign Leadership Phase Steering Committee, we hear stories about how teachers are fostering student growth; how students are ex- pressing their hearts, minds, and spirits with integrity; how alumni are letting their lives speak with values they first learned here.

And we hear stories about you: how through your generosity, you and other Sidwell Friends donors and volunteers are ensuring that the Quaker values that we see in practice every day in this community will endure well into the future.

Now, we are sharing a few of these stories with you and highlighting just a few of the many members of this community who are making a difference. As engaged parents, alumni, and donors, you understand the true impact that your gifts have on the lives of students.

We hope that in reading this issue, you are as motivated as we are to provide the resources needed to achieve the strategic plan goals on behalf of students and alumni, present and future.

Thank you for every gift that you make, and for joining us in this journey to strengthen this remarkable institution.

In friendship,

Jason Carroll ’96
