Donate to FWCC
My heart still leaps
every time I read Rufus' Jones prayer for the Beloved Community:
"May this fellowship grow and become a Beloved Community in many lands and of many
languages and peoples, joined together in that Spirit and Life which was before the world was.”
It feels like a blessing on all the outreach work that Friends are doing wherever we are. Do you long for this growing Beloved Community as well? Your donations help make Quaker work more visible.
A very small staff, along with many committed volunteers, serves a constituency of over 150,000 Friends in North, Central and South America and the Caribbean. Our work is accomplished through the support of individual Friends, meetings, churches and yearly meetings, as well as investment income. Your financial contributions are crucial to the on-going work of the Section.

Make a gift of stock or securities.
Giving appreciated assets maximizes your charitable contribution. Because of capital gains considerations, it is more beneficial to contribute appreciated securiteis directly to FWCC rather than to sell them and donate the proceeds of the sale.

Make a gift from your IRA
Some Friends may be eligible to make a tax free gift from their Individual Retirement Accounts. The Charitable IRA Rollover, which was initially available in 2006, was extended on January 2, 2013 to include deductions made in 2012 and 2013. Please contact us if you are considering making a gift from your IRA.
Charitable Gift Annuity. Issued and administered in partnership with Friends Fiduciary Corporation, a gift annuity to FWCC can serve as a safe and convenient way to receive lifetime income while responding to a desire to partner with FWCC in its ministry and work. The minimum amount of a gift annuity is $10,000. Please contact us for an illustration.
Bequest. There are various ways to include FWCC in your estate plan, whether as a percentage of your estate or as a residual of your estate. Click here to learn more about making a bequest and for sample bequest language.
Memorial and Honor Gifts
You can make a gift in honor of someone living or deceased. The Founders Fund is designed to show appreciation of those who have been instrumental in our formation and growth as Friends. Your support of the Founders Fund will be used to ensure FWCC's long-term funding. You may also choose to honor a Friend by simply noting that when you make a donation to FWCC's Annual Fund.
Thank you for your support of FWCC.
