Donate your time and talents

In addition to financial contributions, you may give of your time and talents by serving on one or more committees that do the work of the meeting. 

Once a month we invite everyone to put on work gloves and come to Love Your Meetinghouse Day where we work together on grounds and building maintenance.

What about the watermelon?

The ceramic watermelon near the coffee pot invites contributions solely for offsetting the cost of refreshments and food. To contribute to the overall operating expenses of the meeting, please use one of the methods above. 

Leaving a legacy

Bequests contribute significantly to the continued vitality and sustainability of our faith community. This type of gift is not just for the wealthy; options for planned giving are suitable to people of ordinary means. The Trustees and Finance Committee work with Friends Fiduciary Corporation, a non-profit guided by Quaker values, to receive and invest these kinds of gifts. 

Other giving options

If you are over 70 1/2 years of age, you may use a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your IRA to contribute to the Meeting, while also reducing your tax liability,   even if your deductions don't exceed the standard deduction. Consult your accountant or IRA provider about how to make this kind of contribution. 

The meeting also accepts gifts of appreciated securities. Contact the treasurer of Trustees for information on how to do this.
