An exceptional education should be accessible to all.

As you may know, for safety reasons and care for our community, we have decided not to hold a Friends School Plant Sale this year.

The Plant Sale is our largest fundraiser. Cancelling the sale will mean a significant financial loss for our school. The funds we usually raise from the Plant Sale provide tuition assistance and support our progressive education programs for all FSMN families. This financial loss is especially significant now, at a time when more families may need financial assistance.

At this unprecedented time, our school is in need of extraordinary financial support.  If you are in a position to do so, please consider a special donation at this time, and reach out to your families and networks for support.

Good news for some—the new Federal CARES Act allows you to deduct $300 off your income for charitable donations, if you file using a standard deduction.

“This school not only teaches us academic things such as math, science, history, etc. FSMN also teaches us about real world situations such as immigration, race, slavery, and world religions.”

How Your Donation Helps

Thanks to donations from people like you, we are able to keep tuition fees among the lowest in the state and provide more than 40% of our students with need-based scholarships–up to 90% of full tuition, after-school care, and clubs/activities.

Donations also help enrich our program through environmental education activities, arts/drama residencies, and service-based learning in the community. You can help equip our students for their work as stewards of the world that we all share.


Please contact our Development Director, Dawn Einwalter, to explore your support options:  or 651-917-0636.

How to Donate Now

Monthly or one-time online donations can be easily and safely set up on our donation page or by contacting your financial institution to set up direct transfers.

Other ways to give may include:

  • Make a gift of securities. A charitable gift of stock completely avoids the long term capital gains tax, allowing the full value of the asset to be put to use. For more information, please contact us at
  • See if your place of work has a matching donation program – double your impact!
  • Make a bequest. Contact us at for more information.
  • Make an IRA Distribution
  • Make a gift in honor of a loved one’s birthday, an anniversary, to welcome a new baby, or ‘just because’.

Thank you for supporting our mission “to prepare students to embrace life, learning, and community with hope, skill, understanding, and creativity.”  Together, we are making a difference in the world.
