New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.

Administrative, Legal, Financial & Insurance Services

Sometimes the spiritual work we do together happens in very practical ways. Our local meetings face many similar challenges, and New England Yearly Meeting exists to help us do together what our local meetings cannot do alone. The staff, committees, and volunteer leadership of NEYM are available to provide support to local meetings in a number of ways, including:

  • Publicity for meeting events and sharing your news through the NEYM website
  • Reduced-cost insurance for unincorporated meetings and worship groups, through inclusion under NEYM coverage
  • Confidential criminal background screenings for youth workers in your meeting, both paid and volunteer
  • Socially responsible investment of local meeting funds in keeping with Quaker principles, through the NEYM Pooled Funds
  • Proof of tax-exemption for Quaker religious activities, including your NEYM meeting or worship group
  • Receiving funds from bequests, sale of property, and gifts of stock
  • Consultation on legal matters through our general counsel
  • Helping Friends make automatic monthly donations to your meeting (coming soon)
  • Training in Quaker financial management
  • Support for video and phone conferencing 
  • Networking with Friends serving in corresponding roles in other local meetings (ex: clerks, treasurers, building & grounds committee members)

For more information on how we can support the life of your meeting, call the NEYM office at (508) 754-6760, or email [email protected]
