Annual Fund

Friends Do More

The Annual Fund is essential to fulfilling the vision of the School and meeting the our day-to-day needs. Every donation helps add exciting new teaching tools and technology to improve the education of our 500+ CFS students.

YOU Make the Difference

Carolina Friends School is committed to providing more resources and more opportunities for our students to learn and grow. We are determined to do more, and we invite you to join us with a gift before the end of this fiscal year on June 30.
