True Blue describes some of our most loyal Friends School donors. A True Blue donor is one who has contributed for ten or more consecutive years to Wilmington Friends School. Contributions may be to the Annual Fund, Endowment, Capital Campaigns or a combination of all three. True Blue donors are recognized in our Annual Report and special events throughout the year.
When comparing national averages among independent schools, Friends is the leader in giving with high percentages of participation from alumni, parents, parents of alumni, and grandparents. Faculty/staff and trustees lead the way by consistently contributing at 100%. The number of alumni, parents, parents of alumni, and grandparents who contribute is also high and many are True Blue.
The number of True Blue donors has continued grow over the past ten years. We currently have 622 True Blue donors who consistently contribute about one-half of our Annual Fund each year.
