The 2018-19 Preliminary Annual Report reflects all donations received by Friends Seminary between July 1, 2018 and March 1, 2019. Charitable donations are an essential and growing part of the School's budget. We are most grateful to our generous donors who support the Fund for Friends, the endowment and capital projects, as well as our dedicated volunteers whose achievements are essential to helping Friends “bring about a world that ought to be.”


Great care has been taken in preparing this report to make it as accurate as possible. If you should note an inaccuracy or would like to increase your gift, please notify Judy Brown, Director of Annual Giving, at 646-979-5054 or jbrown@friendsseminary.org. The Preliminary Annual Report (as well as the final published Annual Report) is only available through the friendsseminary.org website and is not available to search engines. *Please note: The Fund for Friends was formerly named the Annual Fund.

 - Indicates Five or More Years of Consecutive Giving


The Friends Seminary community is characterized by its extraordinary generosity and by its dedication to service. Thank you to all the volunteers who gave that 

most precious resource—time—in service of the School.
