48 Hours for Scholars

This campaign ended on May 28, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Sidwell Friends School by clicking here!



You’ve seen the facts about Sidwell Friends School’s financial aid: 

  • Approximately one-quarter of Sidwell Friends students receive financial aid; 
  • Sidwell Friends annually awards over $8 million in financial aid; and
  • The average award is $28,300 per student.

These figures tell only a portion of the story, because financial aid truly benefits every child at Sidwell Friends. 

We can’t imagine what the Sidwell Friends experience would be like without students from a broad range of socioeconomic backgrounds. That’s why we gather every spring and give generously at A Night for Scholars: to ensure we don’t have to. This year, we could not raise much-needed funds in person—just as families are facing new financial hardships due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The School has already directed over $200,000 of additional financial aid to Sidwell Friends families, and we need your help in meeting our existing financial aid commitments to all the bright, talented students that make our community stronger. 

Please make a gift today and ensure every student has the resources they need to fully participate in the life of the School.
