Financing Monthly and Quarterly Meeting Activities

Monthly and quarterly/regional meetings…have broad discretion in the raising, custody, and spending of money. They are encouraged to conduct their affairs so that money for routine operating budgets is raised from the current generation, without undue reliance on the generosity of past members. They are also encouraged to take care that their fundraising activities spread the burden of financial support suitably. Monthly meetings rely mainly on the contributions of members, but encouragement of contributions from regular attenders is also appropriate.
