Greenwood Friends School now accepts donations online through PayPal. Using this secure system you can safely and conveniently make a one time donation to Greenwood’s Annual Fund to support the students, teachers, and educational programs at our school.
Participation in Greenwood Friends School’s annual giving appeal by all members of our community—parents, alumni, faculty & staff, members of the board of trustees, and many friends—is critically important for the success of the school. Please remember that, whatever the size, every gift is valuable and important, and that your gift is an investment in the future of our children, the local community, and the world. Tuition covers about 80% of Greenwood’s operating expenses. Annual giving is absolutely necessary to help cover the rest, allowing the school to keep tuition as reasonable as possible and still build a community of students from diverse backgrounds.
To learn more about how you can support annual giving, contact the school at 570-458-5532.
The family of Dick and Shirley Wenner has established the Wenner Family Early Learning Fund at Greenwood Friends School. Contributions to this fund will be directed to students in Greenwood’s Primary classroom and used for books, project materials, hands-on resources and field trips that will help make the earliest days of school deeply engaging, inspiring, and fun. We thank the Wenner family for creating this opportunity on behalf of Greenwood’s youngest students and invite others to help build the Wenner Family Early Learning Fund into a resource that will make a profound difference in the lives of Primary students in the years to come.
Under the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, the State of Pennsylvania allows most corporations and shareholders of many corporations doing business in the state to make contributions to Greenwood Friends School in lieu of paying taxes. If your business owes $1000 to the Commonwealth, you may be able to send $750 or even $900 of that obligation to Greenwood instead of Harrisburg. Combined with the Federal tax deductions for donating, a significant donation to Greenwood may cost you or your business nothing.
Our Educational Improvement Tax Credit Working Group can help you navigate through program’s paperwork: Call or email today for more information about how you can turn your tax burden into direct support for Greenwood Friends School: 570-458-5532 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
