MOVERS & QUAKERS HONORS AND RECOGNIZES THE GENEROSITY OF YOUNG ALUMNI
AS EMERGING PHILANTHROPIC LEADERS INVESTED IN SIDWELL FRIENDS.


Movers & Quakers recognizes and honors young alumni in their first five to twenty years since graduation from Sidwell Friends as emerging philanthropic leaders. By supporting the School’s highest priorities, including student financial aid, faculty professional development, and engaging student experiences, Movers & Quakers have a significant impact on the School’s ability to shape the future of Quaker education. The group also comes together for special networking and social events.

For alumni, there is no better way to show support for the School than through philanthropy, especially through contributions to The Sidwell Friends Fund. This will ensure that students receive the educational experience we all value in an institution that reflects the diverse experiences and perspectives of our nation’s capital and its neighboring communities. Join in and inspire the next generation of thoughtful leaders!

"Sidwell is my #1 philanthropic priority because, nearly two decades after graduating, what I learned there, and the friends I made, both remain integral to who I am. One small way I can give back is by supporting SFS as a leadership donor; another is giving my time in service to the School as a volunteer, which is perhaps the greatest joy, as it brings me into contact with so many friends with so many different experiences at, and connections to, this incredible place."
