Endowment keeps Friends Seminary financially strong.

Why do we need endowment?

A robust endowment, well-invested, is the key financial foundation for any school and is our greatest resource for safeguarding the School’s mission through fluctuating economic conditions.  It will enable the School to compensate its teachers, attract a diverse student body, to invest in new technologies and pursue curricular enhancements.

Investing in Friends Seminary’s endowment demonstrates a commitment to ensuring the future of our school and is an opportunity for donors to create a lasting legacy.  Those who contribute to Friends Seminary’s endowment can take great satisfaction in knowing that their gifts are benefiting the school now and in the future and will allow us to maintain our commitment to help prepare “our students for the world that is and help them bring about a world that ought to be”. 
Friends Seminary actively promotes diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism in all its programs and operations, including admissions, financial aid, hiring, and all facets of the educational experience. To form a community which strives to reflect the world’s diversity, we do not discriminate on the basis of race or color, religion, nationality, ethnicity, economic background, physical ability, sex, gender identity or expression, or sexual orientation. Friends Seminary is an equal opportunity employer.
