For 155 years, Brooklyn Friends School has provided an essential educational experience for our students. Spanning a spectrum that begins in our Preschool with our two-year-old play-based curriculum and culminating with our Upper School students who receive an esteemed International Baccalaureate education, our students will continue to have a meaningful social impact well beyond their time in our buildings.

Fueling all aspects of the educational program, gifts to the Brooklyn Friends Fund have a direct and immediate impact on opportunities for teaching and learning, grounded in our Quaker values. Unrestricted gifts last year allowed every child in our school to experience a creative, engaging, and empowering experience.

Together, we are all stewards for Brooklyn Friends School students—today and tomorrow.  We thank you for partnering with us on this worthy journey.

It helps to fund everything from competitive colleague salaries and financial aid to books and computers, athletic programs and curriculum enhancements.

A key factor in the success of the Brooklyn Friends Fund is that every family gives according to their means. Last year donations ranged from $1 to $100,000. All gifts, regardless of size, have an impact on the school and are greatly appreciated.
