Why Give to Friends Academy?
“We give to help provide the training, the tools, and the spirit that allows the faculty to teach outside the box. We believe in educating the whole child, which FA embraces. We give to support the spirit, the feeling, and the atmosphere of an extended family that FA provides.”Parent of a Third Grader
Friends Academy is kept strong through visionary leadership, an unwavering commitment to its educational philosophies, exemplary teaching, an unequaled sense of community, and the staunch support of its families.
Like other non-profit organizations, Friends is sustained by the generosity of its community of parents, faculty, trustees, grandparents, alumni, and past parents. Because tuition alone does not fully support the cost to educate a student, our donors that their support is necessary to provide this extraordinary learning environment. Donors give to Friends Academy because they believe in its mission, they understand it is a special place to educate children, and they are willing to invest in a place where there is magic within and beyond the classrooms.
We accept major credit cards, PayPal, and Venmo through our secure, online giving platform, Givebutter. You can also write a check to Friends Academy and mail it to 1088 Tucker Rd., Dartmouth, MA 02747. A cash gift entitles you to an income tax deduction in the year of the gift.
