GIVING THAT GIVES BACK
Friends Western School counts on the strength of our fundraising efforts to keep a Friends education accessible to all children. As a young school without an endowment, your gifts help us:
- Attract & retain exceptional teachers
- Purchase important classroom materials and equipment
- Maintain a safe and clean space for our students, teachers and community
- Offer competitive tuition costs & financial aid
Friends Western School seeks to achieve a student body that reflects the incredible diversity found in Los Angeles. Children of all backgrounds are considered for admission. This year, 28% of our student body received financial aid, with rewards ranging up to 57% of the cost of tuition. As a school, we count on the strength of our fundraising efforts to keep a Friends education accessible to all children.
Ways to Give
We welcome cash gifts by check, money order, or credit card. Checks should be made payable to Friends Western School and sent directly to the school.
A gift of stock or securities can offer greater tax savings than a cash gift. Please contact the school for details.
Donation Item to Sell
A gift of art or a tangible item that the school can sell on its website is another great way to give to FWS.
Member Participation: Annual Fund
FWS asks members of the school to support the Annual Fund. The Annual Fund plays a critical role in helping bridge the gap between tuition and total operating expenses. Our goal is 100% participation. We ask each family to contribute at a level that is personally meaningful for them.
