Where would you like to direct your investment?
Family of Funds is our Annual Fund program which allows you to designate your
gift to an area that matches your own interest. While gifts to the Area of
Greatest Need are our highest priority, we understand that different areas of school-life
hold significance to each giver. Regardless of which area you choose to
support, we hope FRA is one of your top three philanthropic priorities. The
funds below represent the areas you may choose to invest in FRA.
of Greatest Need
These funds will be used to
support the operating budget directly benefiting our students, teachers,
programs, and operations. Unrestricted gifts to the operating budget allow the
school to use your gift where it is most vitally needed. These gifts provide
the school with the necessary flexibility to respond rapidly to changing
circumstances and to take advantage of unexpected opportunities.
FRA is dedicated to inspiring in
our students a lifelong love of learning through programs emphasizing skills of
collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and global
awareness. Great teachers are at the heart of this initiative, and in order to
retain and recruit the best teachers, FRA offers competitive salaries and
opportunities for professional growth.
and Performing Arts
The arts are an integral part of
a complete education. Your gift designated to FRA’s music, theater, and fine arts
programs will ensure continued exceptional instruction for students at all
grade levels. Beginning in the lower school and continuing through the upper
school, FRA students are immersed in activities and endeavors that foster a
lifelong appreciation of the arts.
Life and Philanthropic Studies
Your gift to spiritual life and
philanthropic studies helps FRA raise our students to be people of conviction
within an inclusive Christian community. At every grade level, students are
guided by Christian principles to lead and participate in a variety of
intentional service opportunities. These experiences help students develop
leadership abilities and important lifelong skills that compel students to lead
lives of compassionate global citizenship.
Your gift to FRA’s athletics and
wellness programs will help support activities that build physical strength,
self-discipline, self-confidence, and collaborative skills, all of which are
essential to personal growth.Our
coaches are educators, and your support will enable them to continue FRA’s
commitment to teamwork, sportsmanship, personal growth, and respect for self
Financial aid plays a critical
role in creating classes of students with a diversity of talents, backgrounds,
and experiences. Gifts to this fund allow FRA to seek out students whose values
and contributions will strengthen the learning environment at FRA. Financial
aid is awarded to qualified students on a need basis.
The Annual Fund Family of Funds

designated contributions exceed the budgeted limit, we will direct the funds to
the Area of Greatest Need. Thank you for your commitment to FRA; your support helps
