Sandy Spring Friends School



Support SSFS

At Sandy Springs Friends School, our shared purpose not only inspires us, it unites us.

A Transformative Education Involves Stewardship

SSFS provides a transformative education that empowers young people to live out our Quaker values of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Stewardship (the SPICES)—and in doing so, they are empowered to change the world.

In order to achieve our ambitious mission, we depend on the support of our entire school community. 

Your support is welcome in any number of forms:

  • Contribute your time.

  • Contribute your presence and perspective. 

  • Contribute your resources.

No matter what form your generosity takes, it matters

Your contributions help SSFS do the greatest good by bridging the gap between tuition and the actual cost of providing a transformative education to each student. It helps us ensure that a family’s financial circumstances aren’t a barrier to belonging and learning in our community. What’s more, your contributions strengthen the School’s legacy, ensuring that SSFS is able to nurture positive changemakers long into the future.

Ours is a worthy mission. Join us.
