Legacy Grants: Apply Now

The NEYM Legacy Gift Committee has completed four years of the Future Fund and has awarded a total of $517,000 for New England Friends work in the world.

In fall 2019, the Committee will take a break from reviewing applications to consider management of the remaining balance in the Future Fund, which is approximately $50,000. We will also be reviewing key policies we have developed over the past four years.

The next deadline for the Witness and Ministry Fund will be March 1, 2020.

If you have questions about any part of the Legacy grant program, please contact the co-clerks at [email protected].

Updated guidelines and application forms for both the Witness and Ministry Fund and the Future Fund are posted below. Please contact the co-clerks at [email protected] with any questions.

The Legacy Gift Committee announces a new process for considering time-sensitive requests for funding

Beginning in January 2019 and continuing through September 30, 2019, the Legacy Gift Committee will consider funding requests for time-sensitive projects that take place outside of regular deadlines (March 1 and October 1). The Committee will consider time-sensitive applications on a rolling basis, with a minimum of a month's notice.

This process is intended to enable timely support for participation in or provision of trainings, conferences or other time-sensitive events or projects that fit Legacy funding criteria (including support, oversight and reporting). The maximum grant is $1,000.

Applicants should follow the Legacy guidelines and application procedures.
