How the Sharing Fund Works

The Sharing Fund is a coordinated annual giving appeal under the care of Witness Coordinating Committee (WCC). WCC assembles these funds for the use of committees whose primary functions are projects of outreach sponsored by New York Yearly Meeting. Witness Coordinating Committee establishes goals for the Sharing Fund based on the recommendation of its constituent committees and exercises general oversight of the fund.

The Witness Activities Fund

WCC also administers the Witness Activities Fund, a participant in the Sharing Fund. The Witness Activities Fund supports individual Friends, meetings, and committees pursuing special projects or leadings in witness ministry.
