Major and Planned Gifts

Sidwell Friends’ new strategic plan provides a clear vision of the exciting opportunities and critical priorities before us.

Capital Campaign Planning

The School is in the leadership phase of capital campaign planning for the fundraising objectives identified through strategic planning. Gifts for the Annual Fund, the purchase of real estate adjacent to our campus, and the endowment are our current priorities.

Alumni, parents, and friends who are interested in learning more about how they can have an impact on achieving the School’s strategic goals should contact Mary Carrasco, Assistant Head of School for Advancement, at or 202-537-8117 for up-to-date information.
