Contribute Time, Talent, and Treasure

The Meeting welcomes and needs contributions of time, talent, and treasure to support our rich spiritual life and many social and outreach activities.

Support the Meeting Financially

Contributions from members and attenders provide more than 60 percent of our budget, making them the primary source of funding for expenses that include personnel costs; building maintenance and improvements; First Day School and Cooking for the Homeless; and support for Philadelphia Yearly Meeting.

How Much Should I Give?

We ask that all contribute to the best of their ability, while prayerfully considering both the needs of the Meeting and the many ways in which the Meeting contributes to their lives, their spiritual growth, and the strength of their families. We need an average of $500 per household to meet our goal for contributions.  However, we do not recommend how much each household should contribute, feeling that a suggested amount may limit the giving of some or appear an insurmountable burden for others.

Bequests provide a financial future for the Meeting.
