2021-22 Annual Report | Founders Society

“When the Solebury School opened in New Hope, Pennsylvania in the fall of 1925, it was not just another school for several reasons. No wealthy person gave money to found the school; the founders were not concerned with financial profits; nor did they believe that more schools or bigger schools were needed.”—Excerpt from a 1932 article in Progressive Education by Arthur “Doc” Washburn, Solebury’s first headmaster and one of its four founders.

The Founders Society is built upon the tradition of keeping the original inspiration for Solebury School alive and thriving. The leadership support of the following individuals ensures the continuation of the Founders’ ideals and our school’s pursuit of excellence in education.

The following is our list of our philanthropic leaders whose enduring generosity over the years totals an investment of $100,000 or more.
