Funds Available for Travel to Conferences Reflecting Quaker Values

At the LEYM Annual Sessions in 2018, $1,000 was designated in the budget to assist Friends to attend conferences that reflect Quaker values. Conferences reflecting Quaker values can be conferences developed by or sponsored by Quaker groups or conferences whose purposes are closely aligned with Quaker testimonies, such as peace, equality, integrity, and simplicity. These funds are not meant to support travel to regularly occurring Quaker meetings such as the FGC Gathering or Yearly Meeting sessions, since other scholarships are available for those events. They should be used for one-time or rarely occurring events, workshops, or conferences.

To request funding submit this form to the Clerk of Lake Erie Yearly Meeting at least six weeks before an answer is needed. The form should be accompanied by a statement of support from the Clerk of the Friend’s monthly meeting, the Convener of their Worship Group, or the designee of either. Funding decisions will be made together by the following officers of Lake Erie Yearly Meeting or their designees: the Presiding Clerk, the Treasurer, and the Clerk of the Ministry & Nurture Committee.
