Capital and Endowment Campaigns
Every few years, Friends conducts capital campaigns to support long-term capital projects including building renovations, additions to the physical plant and increasing the School’s endowment. Capital campaigns strengthen the School’s ability to carry out our unique mission and build upon our Quaker values.
In 2010, the School concluded the Lift Every Voice campaign which funded the renovation and increased endowment for two of our core values: faculty support and diversity through financial aid. With an internal goal of building the endowment to $30 million in the next few years, Friends completed an endowment initiative to mark the School’s 225th anniversary. A larger endowment will provide a more stable financial base to the School as well as allow for expanded programs, increased financial aid and keeping faculty compensation at a competitive level. Most importantly, Friends will have the security of resources to sustain the excellent education for our students in future economic crises. Click here for more on Endowment Giving.
Planned Giving: Friends for the Future
Following the generous example of Robert Murray, a Quaker whose bequest opened the doors of Friends Seminary in 1786, you can positively impact the School through Friends for the Future, our planned giving program. A planned gift may allow you to make a larger gift than you might have thought possible. Planned gifts can take many forms, from a bequest to an insurance policy to a trust.
