Over $1.7 million in needs-based financial assistance from the Greenleaf Fund has now been allocated to qualifying older members and attenders of monthly meetings in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. The Greenleaf Granting Group recognizes that how they accomplish this is even more important than how much has been granted. They have issued a clear statement of the values their grants are meant to embody, hoping the statement will help aging Friends feel comfortable asking for help when they are in need. The statement is also intended to guide the Greenleaf Granting Group’s own work now and in the future.
Friends interested in applying for Greenleaf Grants, and Care Committees seeking help for aging members in need are encouraged to contact PYM Care and Aging Coordinator George Schaefer at 215-241-7068 or firstname.lastname@example.org and visit our website at www.pym.org/grants.
