One of the qualities that sets Lansdowne Friends School apart is the culture of shared responsibility; the students are expected to create problems as well as solutions, and prepared to see that sometimes the right answer is that the answer is still unknown. 

I give to Lansdowne Friends School as a means of practicing my commitment to the school and declaring my belief in its mission. I give because it makes a difference to families with children right now in the Philadelphia area and because it makes a difference to the future we (all humans) are living into.
