New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.

Legacy Gift Committee

  • Welcome

    The Legacy Gift Committee was appointed by Annual Sessions in 2014 to develop procedures and oversee the disbursement of monies from the funds created with the proceeds of the sale of the New England Friends Home.

    The purpose of the Legacy Gift Funds is to support the ministries of New England Yearly Meeting Friends, both within and beyond our region.

    Guided by our living testimonies, we seek to strengthen our Witness through the funding of public and released ministry, beginning with attention to Racism and Climate Change and understanding that this is a starting point and concerns beyond these may also be funded. We seek to nurture our beloved community through the support of education, outreach, released ministry and meetinghouse projects. The Legacy Funds will serve as potent seeds to help Friends answer God’s call in our time and to strengthen the new life that is already rising up in our Yearly Meeting.
