Quaker Tuition Aid Grants

National Friends Education Fund (NFEF) is a tuition aid fund to support Quaker children in Friends Schools across the country. The fund aims to increase the ability of Quaker families to afford to send their children to Friends schools.
Friends schools value the presence and active participation of their Quaker families and Quaker families, likewise, value the institutional missions and commitments of their schools. For this reason  Friends Council on Education joins the efforts of families, schools and Monthly Meetings to provide tuition assistance for Quaker families who demonstrate need.

The Ravdin Fund
The Ravdin Fund was established as a permanently endowed fund of Friends Council on Education to continue the essential consulting work with small Friends schools in the tradition of Bill Ravdin. Grants to small Friends schools (250 students or fewer) help to provide consultants in the areas of fiduciary responsibility, long-range financial planning, fundraising, and stewardship of financial resources.
