The Gordon Fields Fund honors the influence Gordon Fields has had on the students and alumni of Tandem Friends School, both as an athletic director and coach and as the director of diversity. Over Gordon’s years at Tandem, he has coached and mentored numerous students and continued those relationships after the students graduate. He has been instrumental in the establishment and growth of Tandem Friends Diversity, Equity and Inclusion program, particularly in developing student leadership opportunities.
The Gordon Fields Fund supports programmatic expenses in the area of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Initial funding was provided by a group of Tandem Friends alumni who played basketball with Gordon. Some of their parents matched their gifts. 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.
