Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

How does the Fund work?

How is the Fund managed?

The Friends Meeting House Fund is managed by an Executive Director and a ten-member Board of Directors.  The Board members are appointed by the Central Committee of Friends General Conference.  Board members, although volunteers, possess expertise in architectural practice and design, property management, construction, fiscal planning, real estate lending, and legal practice.  One or more Board members can assist your meeting in reviewing all aspects of your project.  The Board will conduct a site visit to meet with your meeting before approving a loan.

How is Friends Meeting House Fund Organized?

The Friends Meeting House Fund is organized as a Pennsylvania non-profit corporation established by Friends General Conference (FGC) to provide a way for Quaker Meetings to borrow money to help renovate, build, or buy a meeting house.
