The Annual Fund

20161003_2010At Frankford Friends School, tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating students. The Annual Fund keeps tuition low (the lowest by far among Friends schools in the region), while helping us to improve our programs and provide competitive salaries and benefits for our teachers.

Current parents, alumni and their families, teachers, grandparents, Meeting and School Committee members, and other generous friends of the school make tax-deductible donations of all sizes to the Annual Fund each year. Gifts in any amount are welcomed and deeply appreciated.

In recent years, the Sustainers Circle has enabled more people who care about Frankford Friends School to make a real difference in its financial sustainability by giving monthly in any amount for at least a year. In the third year of the program, 36 Sustainers (including 13 faculty members) gave an average of $24/month each, raising more than $10,000 for the Annual Fund!
