Governance and Finances
Positions, Governance and Policy
FCNL’s legislative priorities arises from a process of worshipful discernment, carried out by Friends in hundreds of Quaker meetings and churches across the country. We are governed by a General Committee, a board of nearly 200 Quakers from around the country who represent a range of organizations, perspectives and theological traditions within the Religious Society of Friends. Every two years, the General Committee determines FCNL's legislative agenda based on our overall policy statement: The World We Seek.
Finances and Stewardship
FCNL comprises two organizations. The Friends Committee on National Legislation is a 501(c)(4) civic organization, and the FCNL Education Fund is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Donations to the latter are tax-deductible.
Combined Financials: FCNL's combined financials are strong, with Annual Fund contributions exceeding of $3 million yearly as of FY 2014. A majority of our income comes from individual donors, and both monthly giving and individual donations are on the rise.
