Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Support Current Ministries

Joanne Clapp Fullagar (2011)

Turn your dollars into ministries with a gift to FGC’s Annual Fund.  Your contribution will help make possible the vital FGC projects, services, and ministries that serve meetings and nurture the spiritual journeys of individual seekers and Friends.

FGC supports individuals through programs like the Gathering and the QuakerBooks bookstore. We serve monthly meetings with resources like the Spiritual Deepening Library and Spiritual Deepening eRetreats. Our Youth Ministries and Ministry on Racism work is helping to transform the Religious Society of Friends.

These programs and services are available thanks to the generous contributions of Friends, meetings, and foundations to the Annual Fund.

Ways to Give

There are many ways to make a financial contribution in support of FGC’s ministries. Gifts of cash, stock, or deferred gifts are the most common. We know that you might have questions about your donations; feel free to review our Donations FAQs and contact us with any unanswered questions that you may have.

Gifts of Stock

Giving securities (or “stock”) is easy and offers excellent benefits for making a major gift. You receive a tax deduction for the full market value of appreciated shares or mutual funds on the day they are transferred to FGC, and you do not pay any capital gains tax! 

Deferred Gifts

  • Making a gift from your estate (a bequest) to support FGC’s ministries is an easy way to let your values speak past your lifetime.
  • Investing in a life income gift, such as a charitable gift annuity or trust, cares for you during your lifetime and FGC afterward.
