Sponsor

A Night for Scholars is a 48-year tradition that supports student financial aid at Sidwell Friends School. This annual spring fundraiser brings the Sidwell Friends community together in support of student financial aid. In 2018, the celebration broke records, raising more than $258,000 for Fund-aScholar and $125,000 through the live and silent auction and signup events.

Sidwell Friends has a strong commitment to financial aid, which is based on our belief that a community of students from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds enhances the educational experience of all students and prepares them to succeed in the wider world.

By becoming an A Night for Scholars event sponsor, you are directly supporting Sidwell Friends’ commitment to raising money for student financial aid. Last year, 7 million dollars of aid supported 23% of our student population. Your sponsorship helps reduce the costs of producing this important fundraising event, thus ensuring all net proceeds benefit students directly through financial aid packages.

Sponsors of A Night for Scholars directly underwrite the cost of the event, allowing for every dollar raised in ticket sales, sign-up parties and packages, auction items, and Fund-a-Scholar to go directly to student financial aid.
