Sandy Spring Friends School was founded in 1961 with remarkable gifts of land and funds, made by donors committed to creating a school grounded in Quaker testimonies and practice. For more than 50 years, the generosity of the extended SSFS community has made possible the continued growth of a school whose motto–"Let Your Lives Speak"–remains as relevant today as it was at the School's founding. Gifts large and small provide critical funding for scholarships, curricular innovation, technology, athletics, professional development, maintenance of our 140-acre campus, and much more.

Your support of and participation in SSFS's Annual Fund and events make a difference to each and every one of our students, teachers, and parents. Contributions to Sandy Spring Friends School are powerful examples of stewardship–of a school and of an educational philosophy–and invaluable statements of commitment to our community's continued quest for excellence.

Thank you for all the many ways in which you contribute to Sandy Spring Friends School. Each and every gift has a wonderful impact on our school, and we are most truly grateful.
