The $250,000 fund drive, Defining the Future, for Olney Friends School registered a modest increase during the past week.

As of last Thursday, alumni, friends and community members have donated $134,796, or 54% of the goal.

That leaves some heavy lifting, raising $115,204 over the next 24 days by the fund deadline of March 31.

Otherwise, the school will be unable to open in Fall 2018, and leadership may be forced to lay down the school.

More information on the campaign is posted on the school’s website and Facebook page.
