A pre-k through eighth grade coed day school
Gifts to the Annual Fund are essential to sustain and improve the academic programs at NFS.  Through the Annual Fund, parents, grandparents, alumni parents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends demonstrate their support of our educational mission.  Many people are unaware that tuition accounts for only 87% of the cost of educating a child at Newtown Friends. The remaining 13%—which comes from charitable gifts and other income—is needed so that NFS can provide an education of exceptional quality for every student.  

Each year, we seek to grow support for the Annual Fund, the foundation of our fundraising efforts.  Gifts at all levels are important and appreciated.  By participating in the Annual Fund, you help keep NFS vital, sustaining the school’s day-to-day operations and enhancing programs for today's students.

Volunteers play an important role in the success of our Annual Fund and we welcome your involvement.  If you would like to volunteer, please email Diane Zimmaro, Director of Advancement.

The Annual Fund ensures that students have access to:

  • Educational supplies and materials 
  • Up-to-date equipment for science labs
  • Library resources
  • Technology upgrades and enhancements
  • Athletic equipment
  • Safe and beautiful grounds for athletics, recreation, and outdoor educational experiences
