Special Funds

The Nancy Hiles Johnson Fund for Student Experiences

The Nancy Hiles Johnson Fund for Student Experiences was created to honor Tandem Friends School English teacher Nancy Hiles Johnson for her many years of devoted service. Over Nancy’s career she has nurtured students and embraced Tandem’s belief that powerful learning happens inside and outside the classroom. She has served as a faculty leader to the 11th grade trip to South Dakota since its inception.

The Nancy Hiles Johnson Fund for Student Experiences supports Tandem Friends School’s experiential education program, including programs such as grade-level trips (e.g. 11th grade South Dakota), off-campus classroom learning opportunities (e.g. play at American Shakespeare Center) and student participation in approved conferences/programs (e.g. QYLC). Initial funding was provided by Nancy’s family and friends. Gifts may be made to the Fund while it is active and pledges to the fund will be accepted for a pledge period up to five years.

Funds will be used to directly support Tandem’s experiential education program activities approved by the Head of School in the three broad categories of grade-level trips, off-campus classroom trips or attendance/travel for students to approved conferences/programs.

Donations may be made by check to Tandem Friends School, 279 Tandem Lane, Charlottesville VA 22902, attn: Development Office.  Credit card gifts can be made online. Tandem Friends also accepts gifts of appreciated securities; contact Tracy Proctor, Director of Institutional Advancement, at (434) 296-1303.
