Fundraising & Donor SupportFor organizatins
Friends Fiduciary provides several support services to assist Friends meetings, organizations and development staff. These include:
- Calculations that illustrate and compare the benefits of a charitable gift annuity or the various types of charitable trusts.
- Assistance to donors who wish to contribute gifts of real estate or other tangible assets to your organization (in partnership with the Mennonite Foundation).
- Resources and educational opportunities
- Processing of stock gifts from your donors. This eliminates the need for your organization to set up brokerage accounts for the sole purpose of receiving gifts.
Opportunities for Planned Giving
Friends Fiduciary can assist your organization through presentations on planned gifts and by providing brochures that describe planned gifts and how they can help your organization build a secure financial future. We can talk directly with your donors about the advantages and mechanics of making a planned gift.
Giving Webpage & On-line Donation Program
Open to meetings, churches, and other Quaker organizations, these services make giving easier for members and donors. Organizations can link a semi-customizable giving page which highlights ways to give to their current website. Friends Fiduciary maintains and updates the page that is hosted by FFC at no cost to. If your yearly meeting does not offer online giving support, FFC can also provide that service by creating a donation form and a secure, embedded online giving portal. It is easy to get started, simply fill out the sign-up form.
Biennial Fundraising Gathering
Friends Fiduciary sponsors the Quaker Fundraisers Gathering offering the opportunity to gather with others who are raising funds for Quaker organizations. The gathering combines learning from presenters and gaining inspiration from peers.
