culture of philanthropy at friends


Philanthropy at San Francisco Friends School is rooted in our commitment to our mission: to deliver an exceptional Quaker education to each student while working towards a more just and caring society. Community generosity enables SFFS to provide competitive professional compensation, an Adjustable Tuition program to make our innovative Quaker education more accessible and affordable, and physical spaces that meet the evolving needs of our students and faculty.

Our approach to philanthropy is guided by the following principles:

  •  We believe every gift of time, treasure, and talent is worthy of gratitude. We honor and acknowledge gifts of all sizes—financial and otherwise— as meaningful investments in our school, both now and into the future.
  • We believe the financial health and stewardship of our school is a responsibility shared by every member of our community. We strive for inclusivity in fundraising and development efforts.
  • We steward resources with care and responsibility, and always in service of our mission.
