The Gathering Together Campaign

With the Gathering Together Campaign, Friends like you are investing significantly in FGC to ensure transformational ministries reach more Friends and meetings. Thanks to generous Friends, we have started an Endowment for the annual Gathering to lower registration fees and increase accessibility.

This $2.4 million campaign will support this endowment and expand other program initiatives to strengthen services for monthly and yearly meetings and increase programming for Friends of Color, Young Adults, and Youth. We’ve already raised more than $1.8 million – 76% of the total goal! Please join us by offering your support today!

Hear From the Campaign Co-Clerks

Jean-Marie Prestwidge Barch

Philadelphia Yearly Meeting

“For me, part of the reason this is such deeply spiritual work is that it speaks to my belief that there really is that of God in every person. The more different reflections of faces of God I can find, the more I can come to find God in a deep and real way.”

Ellie Greenler

Northern Yearly Meeting

“I believe in FGC because it has changed my life. FGC is the reason I am Quaker. FGC provided me the opportunity to see people in this world living out their values and provided me the space to figure out how to live out those values myself”.

Ken Stockbridge

Baltimore Yearly Meeting

I know from personal experience that the work FGC is doing is grounded, it is centered, it is Spirit-filled and Spirit-led. The people involved are faithful, talented, gifted and committed.

Invest in the Future of Friends

An additional goal of the campaign is for 150 Friends to include FGC in their wills or estate plans. If you have included FGC in your plans, please let us know!
