Support for Carolina Friends School enables our powerful educational experience and connects students, parents, staff, alumni, and friends of the School in a greater learning community, both in the present and for many more families to come.
Without the donations of thousands who came before us, Carolina Friends School would not be here today. In fact, a grant of $6,000 (secured by the grandparent of a student) allowed us to open in 1964. The donation paid the salary of our first teacher. And every year since then donations have constructed the buildings, stocked the libraries, and built the school that we all benefit from today.
Tax-deductible contributions to the School make a CFS education more affordable by reducing tuition, provide signature programs like the End-of-Year Experience, and give our amazing staff the technology and teaching tools they need. They also build a sustainable future for our School and learning community.
Full tuition covers only about 84% of the total value of a year's educational experience at CFS. We rely on annual giving and endowments to realize the aspirations of our teachers and potential of our students.
