Here are some more details about giving to PFS and how you can help

List of 2 items.

  • The Friends Fund

    The Annual Friends Fund is in many ways the lifeblood of our school. Tuition charged by PFS covers most but not all of the school’s operating costs, as is the case at nearly every independent school, college, or university. Princeton Friends School receives neither state funding nor financial backing from the Religious Society of Friends. (Such backing doesn’t exist in the Quaker-school world, alas.) But every year, our Annual Friends Fund bridges the gap and sees us through. Annual Friends Fund dollars help us hire and compensate an outstanding faculty; sustain one of the most generous tuition-aid programs in the region; buy books and other classroom materials; fund field trips near and far; maintain our historic grounds; and offer students the community service opportunities that are at the center of Friends school life.

    Princeton Friends School accepts gifts by cash, check, most credit cards, and securities. We are happy to receive and acknowledge gifts made in honor or in memory of others.
  • The Sandstone Society

    In recognition of the faith and foresight of donors who make a planned gift to the school, we have the Sandstone Society, which is named for the bricks of our Meetinghouse. There are a variety of ways to make a planned gift to PFS. Two popular ones are bequests, in which a donor names PFS in his or her will, and charitable trusts or gift annuities, which preserve income for the donor or a designated individual during his or her lifetime, after which the principal is donated to PFS. There are many tax advantages to these and other planned giving vehicles. Please get in touch with our development office if PFS planned giving is of interest to you.
Thank you for considering a generous gift to Princeton Friends School to ensure our School can continue to provide an impactful, rigorous and progressive education to every student. For more details about any of the above, please contact
