Join us in Gathering Together
The Gathering changed my life.
We hear this often from Friends — at every stage of life. Something powerful happens when we gather together.
The first gathering organized by Friends General Conference took place 123 years ago. Today, FGC’s in-person gatherings and virtual events provide thousands of Friends with reliable opportunities to connect with one another.
It’s hard to imagine my life without FGC! … The relationships I made through the high school program are still today the F/friends who know me in the most deeply personal and spiritual way.Ellie Greenler, Campaign Committee Co-Clerk, Northern Yearly Meeting
The Gathering Together fundraising campaign strives to ensure that all Friends have access to the life-changing experiences available through FGC, both now and in the future. Financial priorities have been thoughtfully discerned for this campaign. Your support will help address some of the greatest needs among Friends.
In 2021, we set out to raise $2.4M within three years. Our goal is for $1M of that to go towards an endowment that ensures the long-term vitality and accessibility of the FGC Gathering. The rest will expand and strengthen Ministry on Racism, connecting and communicating with monthly and yearly meetings, youth and young adult ministries, and religious education and spiritual deepening.
Thanks to nearly 100 generous Friends, we’ve already raised over $1.9M in cash and pledged gifts! Please consider joining us by making a tax-deductible donation or planned legacy gift. A generous Friend is prepared to match your donation up to $25,000. Give today to see the impact of your contribution doubled!
