BFS Turns 150
 

Become a Leadership Sponsor of the BFS at 150 Anniversary Gala

In September of 1867, Brooklyn Friends School opened its doors to 17 students at the Brooklyn Monthly Meeting House on Schermerhorn Street. Teachers guided by Quaker values, supported our children, bringing out the Light in each individual. This tradition continues today and this upcoming school year Brooklyn Friends will recognize its 150th anniversary.

The culminating event of the year will be our Sesquicentennial Gala celebration at the Brooklyn Museum. This special 150th Anniversary Gala will bring past and current members of our school community together to celebrate this significant milestone and honor the generations of faculty and staff who have supported each child that has passed through our doors. While the event is certainly a celebration, the Gala will continue to serve as the main fundraising effort for financial aid at Brooklyn Friends School.
