About

As the school year comes to a close we have been challenged to bolster the Friends Select Fund, which directly supports our students and teachers, provides tuition assistance, and helps us address pressing needs such as developing infrastructure to monitor the health and safety of our community.

The iSelectGiving Challenge is to inspire 250 donors to make a contribution to the Friends Select Fund before June 5. The reward will be an additional gift of $20,000 from the Friends Select Board of Trustees.

We are all navigating enormous challenges this pandemic has brought us, but one thing is certain: Friends Select remains devoted to our community. Please make a contribution that is meaningful to you. Any amount will benefit our entire community, keeping us whole, and making sure that our students can continue their education with exceptional Friends Select faculty and staff you know and love. We need your support now more than ever.

  • Share a screenshot or selfie of you connecting with Friends Select friends on Zoom or FaceTime!

Thank You

Thanks to our Friends Select family who showed support in a big way. Over 300 people like you participated in the iSelectGiving Challenge. We received a $20,000 challenge grant from the Friends Select board of trustees, and an additional $20,000 from a group of Friends Select supporters who gave us an extra push in honor of the class of 2020. In all, you helped us raise over $83,000 to support our school. We could not be more appreciative of your participation and support, thank you.


Our efforts will not stop now. The world needs Friends Select students, grounded in Quaker values. Next year will be challenging in many ways; as the effects of COVID-19 ripple through our community, additional needs will arise for our students, families, and teachers. Our goal is that all of our students can continue their education with the exceptional Friends Select faculty and staff you know and love.

THE WORLD NEEDS MORE FRIENDS SELECT STUDENTS

“Because we live in an unjust world, at Friends Select we know that simply talking about equality is not enough. We must work persistently within FSS and in the world to make it a reality.” - Ella Goldman '27


The world needs more Friends Select students like Ella. Students who live lives of integrity by advocating for what is right, not just what is easy. Students who go out into the world and help create communities that promote equality and peace. Students who don't just adapt to the changing world, but strive to change it for the better.

While this is a time of tragedy and unrest, we know that you stand with us in our mission. We are comforted knowing that, at Friends Select, we can count on each other. A gift in any amount will make an impact. Thank you for your support.
