Together We Shine is a collaboration of Sidwell Friends leadership, current and former parents, alumni, current and former grandparents, and friends, and would never have reached this point without the tireless support of dozens of volunteers. This campaign has demonstrated a deep commitment from our community to help further the success of Sidwell Friends and its long-term sustainability as a Quaker institution in Washington, DC.
