Contributions and Affiliations:
Financial contributions from members and attenders are essential to the work of the Meeting, upkeep of property and grounds, and support for our parent organization, Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends. We do not "pass the basket" at meetings for worship, nor do we ask Friends to "pledge" a certain amount each year. The hope and expectation is that all will prayerfully consider what they consider to be an appropriate contribution and act accordingly. All contributions are tax-deductible.
Our annual operating budget is open for all to review and may be found on our website. The fiscal year runs July 1 - June 30. There is a contributions box in the lobby of the brick meeting house, or checks for our annual operating budget may be sent to:
