The Thomas and Frances Sidwell Society recognizes the more than 150 individuals who have made the thoughtful decision of including Sidwell Friends School in their estate plans.  Modern-day bequest follows in the tradition of Thomas Sidwell, who survived Frances and left his estate in the care of the Board of Trustees in 1936.  Bequests, charitable trusts, gift annuities, and other planned giving arrangements continue to bolster the School’s financial stability and have great bearing on every aspect of the work and future of Sidwell Friends.
