The Friends’ Central community generously supports the School to, in the words of our Mission, “cultivate the intellectual, spiritual, and ethical promise of our students.”

As you will see in this section, there are many ways to make a contribution that has an impact on the experience at Friends’ Central and the students and faculty that make our school the special place it is.

From the Friends’ Central Fund, which is used immediately and makes up 4% of the School’s annual budget, to funds raised for financial aid, professional development, and building projects big and small. Raising money is an important part of school life, both for now and for securing the future. Last year, over 1400 donors contributed to the School. Over 460 donors have given to Friends’ Central for 10 consecutive years or more! Your support helps the School continue to be vibrant and strong.

Friends' Central Fund

Each year, hundreds of parents, alumni/ae, parents of alumni/ae, grandparents, and friends give generously to the Friends' Central Fund to provide every student unparalleled opportunities at FCS.
