Since its simple beginning, AMS has stayed committed to keeping its tuition affordable and accessible to the families who need us most. To keep this commitment to our families, we rely on the support of our donors.

Donations are used to continually improve our students’ learning experiences or provide tuition assistance to the families who need it most. Your gift is a vital part of AMS finances, making it possible for AMS to provide a rich experiential education for each student. Contribute today!

Which of these funds matches your philanthropic interests?

Annual Fund
This fund supports operating expenses for the current school year and allows us to keep tuition rates as low as possible.

Scholarship Fund
Many of our students depend on scholarship funds to complete their financial obligation to attend AMS. The Scholarship Fund is critical for many of our families and helps insure diversity in the student body.

Board-Restricted Endowment Fund
Interest from these investments is used for scholarships annually. Investments are managed by Friends Fiduciary Corporation in the socially responsible Consolidated Fund and in the Quaker Green Fund.

 AMS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, independent school (EIN 56-2257100). All donations are tax deductible provided no goods or services were given to you in consideration of your contribution.
