Britain Yearly Meeting works on behalf of all Quakers in Britain to strengthen the Quaker community, speak out in the world and promote peace, justice, equality and sustainability. It is thanks to contributions from Friends that we are able to undertake this work.

Each year we produce a contributions materials for treasurers and collectors to use to encourage contributions from their meeting. Electronic versions of the documents in this pack are linked to below.

Contribution 2021:
Moving forward with your support

"We know that meetings use this material in different ways, but we hope that every Friend and attender will get to see the leaflet. It shows how their generosity supports the collective work of Quakers. It is our hope that every member and attender will have the opportunity to support the centrally managed work of Quakers."

Linda Batten, BYM Treasurer
