Sandy Spring Friends School




The Light the Way Campaign's aim is to raise the funds that will set SSFS on the strongest possible foundation; to that end, the primary goal of Light the Way is to make possible the construction of a new Upper School building. In addition to this vital tangible result, Light the Way will help us strengthen our endowment through planned giving and reinforce a culture of philanthropy that celebrates the central nature of stewardship—of our students, our school, and our community—to SSFS’s Quaker mission.
