Contributions and Affiliations:
Financial contributions to Third Haven Friends Meeting from members and attenders are essential to our Faith and Practice, the work of the Meeting’s committees, maintenance of property and grounds, and support for our parent organization, Philadelphia Yearly Meeting (PYM) of the Religious Society of Friends. We do not "pass the basket" at meetings for worship, nor do we ask Friends to pledge an amount each year. The expectation is that all will prayerfully discern what they consider to be an appropriate contribution and act accordingly. All contributions are tax-deductible.
The Meeting’s annual fiscal year budget, July 1 – June 30, estimates income and expenses. The annual operating budget is open for all to review and may be found on our website. Annual operating expenses are paid from the Operating Fund. There is a contributions box in the lobby of the brick meeting house. Checks for our annual "Operating Fund" may be sent to:
