Founder's Day Match
Friends Academy celebrated Founder’s Day on April 8, to honor the spirit of Gideon Frost who established our school in 1876 to make education accessible to “children of Friends, and those similarly sentimented.”
In this spirit, we want to share a matching gift opportunity that will help Friends provide funds for financial aid. As a thank you to the school a generous family has offered to match all gifts that are made to financial aid in the month of April, up to a total of $40,000.
“I want to thank the faculty at Friends for everything they’ve done for our family.
I want to help others have the same opportunity for their children.”
As you consider a contribution, please take a moment to think about how a Friends education has benefitted you and your family. Your gift toward financial aid will make it possible for others to benefit from a similar experience.
Whether you can help a little or a lot, please respond quickly so we can maximize the potential of this matching gift offer.
