Beacon Hill Friends House Strategic Plan Campaign
Supporting the expanded work of the Beacon Hill Friends House
Three years ago, the Friends House launched an effort to expand our work as a longstanding residence “grounded in Quaker principles” to become a more vibrant hub for learning and action for even more people outside our walls. With the generous support of people like you, we’ve made a lot of progress, including:
Hiring a full-time Program Manager who has led our work to organize powerful event series open to the public, host outside groups who use our space for their own meetings and events, and nimbly grow a popular series of nourishing online programs since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Building connections and partnerships with many community groups, activists, and advocacy organizations that have used our space — for hundreds of hours each year - to support their work on racial equity, climate change, immigration justice, LGBTQ rights, and more.
Hosting a broad range of contemplative, spiritual, and Quaker-related programming open to the public — all of it free or priced with accessible sliding-scale fees. Part of the resident experience at BHFH is exposure to Quaker practices and principles that are relevant to anyone — and our expanded public programs are helping bring that experience to others.
Growing capacity for individual leadership and action by hosting hundreds of participants in workshops and training sessions on issue-based advocacy, activism, and social movement-building.
Taking steps toward greater faithful stewardship of our building and our resources by greatly enhancing our long-term budgeting practices, continually expanding our community of financial contributors, and starting preparations for a comprehensive building conditions assessment and facilities Master Plan for our unique and treasured building.
This is just some of the work that supporters like you have made possible.
With just over 6% of our fundraising goal left to raise, we are now reaching out to our wider community to ask for support. Will you help us reach our goal? Make a donation today.
