Building the Future: The Campaign for Arthur Morgan School

Now more than half a century old, Arthur Morgan School is looking to the future with a campaign to complete the core learning campus, to grow the endowment that funds scholarships and to keep tuition low through a robust annual fund. The combined campaign goal is $1,000,000.

Endowment Fund for Scholarship
Interest and dividends from this invested fund is used for scholarships annually. Investments are managed by Friends Fiduciary Corporation in the socially-responsible Quaker Growth and Income Fund. The current market value is 1.2 million dollars. As this fund grows, we can reduce tuition and foster greater student diversity.
-$280,000 in new gifts needed.

Annual Fund
Annual Fund contributions are applied towards the operating budget for the current school year. This allows us to keep tuition rates down for our student families, while still funding all program elements.

Scholarship Fund
Many of our students depend on scholarship funds to complete their financial obligation to attend AMS. The Scholarship Fund is annually used for the critical needs of our student families.
