Here's what we've heard from donors about why they support Friends Council

“I have found a home in Friends education. The spiritual and moral grounding of the community is unique and invaluable. The focus on diversity, environmental stewardship, service to self and others, and seeing that of God in all things and all people is powerful.”

Former Sidwell Friends School educator

FCE is a critical touch point for Quaker schools. As a trustee I am grateful for their work.”

 “I participated in both SPARC and the Leadership Institute. Both programs impacted my career choice to seek a leadership position and continue to remind me to be reflective in my practice.”

“Friends schools more or less raised me! Beginning in Kindergarten all the way through college and even my first job, I was fortunate to be guided by the Quaker testimonies and great teachers in and out of the classroom. It was a priceless experience for which I am forever grateful. I wouldn’t be as mindful of an educator myself without those experiences.”
