The Annual Fund
The Annual Fund at Frankford Friends benefits every student, every day. Contributions to the Annual Fund support a variety of programs, a robust curriculum, modernization and maintenance of our historic campus, accessible tuition, salaries, benefits, and professional development for our talented and dedicated faculty- every area touches every student at FFS.
Tax deductible gifts to the Annual Fund help to bridge the gap between our tuition and the true cost of a Frankford Friends education. Foundations and other grant-making organizations look to the percentage of participation in the Annual Fund across constituencies as a measure of commitment and loyalty to Frankford Friends School.
All gifts to the Annual Fund make an impact today, and serve as an investment in the future. A contribution to the FFS Annual Fund is a wonderful way to honor your child, his or her teacher, and the outstanding work that happens at Frankford Friends every day.
Every gift matters, and demonstrates a collective commitment to Frankford Friends School. Please join faculty and staff, current and alumni parents, alumni, grandfriends, School Committee members, Meeting members, Friends, and others who support our school.
The Frankford Friends Annual Fund year is July 1 – June 30th. Gifts may be made at any time. Gifts made on or before December 31st are eligible to be claimed as a current tax year deduction.
