The Quaker Buildings and Programs Granting Group was formed in 2016 and has stewardship of the funds formerly granted by the Meeting House Trusts Granting Group, the Pusey Granting Group, and some of the funds granted by the Jeanes Granting Group (the other former Jeanes funds are now under care of the Aging Assistance Granting Group). In 2017, it also assumed the care of the work of the former Family Planning Granting Group.

These grants strengthen Friends organizations. PYM grants are made from restricted funds in accordance with the donors’ requirements.
