The Friends Collaborative was formed by a group of individuals who were passionate about increasing access to Friends education for all families of all backgrounds. In the Summer of 2016, the Friends Collaborative formed Special Purpose Entity LLC corporations for the purpose of raising funds through the Pennsylvania tax credit scholarship programs (EITC and OSTC) and distributing scholarship funds to member schools.
Friends schools operate on the founding Quaker principles of equality and diversity, and maintain financial aid programs to insure accessibility and affordability. Children of all racial, ethnic, economic, and religious backgrounds are welcomed at Friends schools.
The Friends Collaborative is always available to address questions and inquires.
100% of funds raised are awarded as need-based scholarships
Students throughout Pennsylvania are given the opportunity to receive a Quaker education
