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 Tara Arras, Assistant Head of School for Advancement, at or 202-537-8117 for up-to-date information.

Planned Giving

Through a planned gift to Sidwell Friends School, you can thoughtfully invest in the future of the school while continuing to meet your other financial goals and provide for your family.

Your support enables Sidwell Friends to infuse students’ lives with Quaker values, a love of learning, and a commitment to serving others.
