The Benefactors Society is Friends Select School's leadership giving program that recognizes individuals who provide significant annual support to the school.

The exceptional generosity of these donors enables Friends Select to retain talented faculty, respond to the programmatic needs of its students, and continue to offer an education that instills values for "the whole of life."

We invite you to become a member of the Benefactors Society by making a gift of $1,000 or more to the Friends Select Fund. As part of the membership of the Benefactors Society, you will be invited to an annual reception during the school year with head of school Michael Gary and special guest speakers, honoring our most generous donors.
