Friends of Adaire is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit group consisting of parents, educators, and community members whose mission is to enrich the education of Alexander Adaire K-8 School students by providing additional resources and support for students, faculty and staff. Tax ID 47-1461891


Friends of Adaire grew out of, and remains a part of, the 19125 Parents Coalition, a collaborative effort to improve educational opportunities for our kids in the neighborhoods of the 19125 zip code (Fishtown, East Kensington, and Olde Richmond).  


While Adaire's Home and School Association organizes the parents of students enrolled in Adaire, Friends of Adaire seeks to engage those parts of Fishtown -- households with or without kids, homeowners and renters, nonprofits and businesses, public and private sectors -- not yet plugged in to all things Adaire. We all stand to benefit from a school that thrives in the knowledge that it has its community's full backing. 

At the start, we were all parents whose children were not yet of school age. Now some of our kids have enrolled in Adaire and some of our members don't have kids, and we continue to grow in numbers and enthusiasm. Join us!
