Staff and governance members at FGC are deeply concerned about faithful and responsible stewardship of the resources that make the work of FGC possible. Our stewardship efforts have four components:
FGC uses Quaker worship and practices to define and guide the work of the organization. See the governance section.
Our goal is to allocate and use funds in alignment with Quaker values and principles. We budget carefully, using the budget process as an opportunity to discern how we can best achieve our mission and be fiscally responsible. We rely heavily on the work of volunteers to co-create opportunities for spiritual growth, for FGC to be guided by the needs and aspirations our membership, and to amplify the impact of the financial resources that Friends entrust to us. This work is constantly unfolding, often rewarding, and at times challenging. To understand more about our fiscal history, including our successes, recent challenges and our efforts to meet those challenges, please read our Financial Story, 2004-2018 below.
FGC is a 501c3 tax exempt religious organization.
We’re committed to providing valuable and transformative programs/services for our Yearly and Monthly Meeting members, individual Friends and those exploring Quaker spirituality. Committees seek to be responsive to the expressed needs of those we serve. Our decisions, services and materials, to the best of our ability, reflect our community’s response to God’s will as discerned in worship. We measure outcomes and seek to improve our performance.
We seek to be open and transparent. We make our use of financial resources and our results available publicly. We encourage feedback and dialogue on how we use resources and on our performance. As part of our commitment to transparency, FGC has and will continue to provide detailed and accurate organizational and financial information on our GuideStar Nonprofit Profile as well as further down on this page. We are currently recognized with GuideStar's Silver-level Seal of Transparency.
