In 2018, the Meeting asked an ad hoc committee to establish a process for distribution of the funds for Quaker organizations. The work of the ad hoc committee culminated in a report to Meeting for Business in October 2020. At that time, the Meeting approved reconstituting the committee with a renewed effort to determine a process for determining the recipients of the grants and to further work with the Meeting to newly discern the relationship of the Meeting, through its covenant gifts, to the Philadelphia Quarter and to the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting.
The ad hoc Committee on Financial Discernment (Ellen, Jude, Linda, Rebecca and Storm) will conduct listening/worship sharing sessions to help with our discernment.
