THE SIENA SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Scholarship Fund enables our bright, resilient students to access the rich, supportive education they deserve, regardless of family income.
I give to The Siena School Scholarship Fund because I want a Siena education to be available to the largest number of students possible. So many teachers helped me along the way, and I hope to be there for my students too! —Siena Faculty Member
Support Siena Scholars
Since April 2009, The Siena School Scholarship Fund has raised over $1.5 million to enable students to receive the rich, supportive education they deserve. The Scholarship Fund is a nonprofit, tax-exempt entity separate from The Siena School; it is managed by The Greater Washington Community Foundation.* All donations are fully tax-deductible and go directly to the scholarship fund to raise money for financial aid.
Donations of any size are gladly accepted and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. You can choose either a one-time or recurring ($15, $150, or $1,500 per month) donation. An independent committee oversees the Scholarship Fund, and each fall it allocates funds to Siena for students who have been awarded financial aid. Donations come from parents, grandparents, Siena staff, area businesses, and friends of Siena.
About 40% of Siena families receive assistance. Each year, community-driven generosity funds futures and ensures that students benefit from Siena’s programs.
Please take a moment to send your donation by mail, click on the appropriate button below, or bring your donation to The Siena School. Please help achieve the goal of 100% parent participation.

"Siena was a game changer for our child. We give to the scholarship fund to help ensure that cost does not prevent other families from benefiting the way we have." —Siena Family
Having the opportunity to attend Siena has changed my daughter’s life. Before Siena, she was withdrawn, unsure of her abilities, and had almost lost her love of learning. She is now a confident young woman and a leader at the school, and she is looking forward to college. Thank you for making this opportunity available for so many families. —Siena Parent

We are grateful that our son is benefiting enormously from his teachers' expertise in instruction with his learning profile, and that he is getting every possible support for his learning. We feel extremely welcomed and encouraged by this new beginning at Siena. We are so excited to watch him grow with this community. —Siena Parent
