The Granting Committee is charged [PDF] to oversee the granting function of the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, to appoint membership of PYM granting groups, and to develop and implement procedures to ensure effective process, structure, and the general affairs of the granting function of PYM. Its memberships consists of eight to ten members, appointed by the Administrative Council; the PYM Director of Grant Making and PYM Treasurer are also members of the committee, serving ex officio.
The Granting Committee maintains a handbook of granting policies and procedures [PDF], which are not specific to any group — applicants and prospective applicants should consult each individual Granting Group’s guidelines, rather than consulting the handbook. The Granting Committee also publishes annually a consolidated document containing all the current PYM Grants guidelines and forms [PDF], for ease of reference.
