Supporting Gifts


 
   Supporting Gifts to the Orlando Monthly Meeting are very important. They provide the basis for our financial support and for our continued existence as a Quaker Meeting. While it is true our community has the great benefit of a financial legacy provided to us from the generous and wise Friends of the past, we  nevertheless have a duty to protect the legacy for the future. Your support gifts, of any size, will add to the effort to preserve our legacy and enable the Orlando Monthly Meeting of The Religious Society of Friends to continue serving Friends now and beyond our time.
   Gifts may be made in person at the Meeting House or by mail. To use credit cards, debit cards or Paypal, simply click on the DONATE image below, or go to orlandoquakers.org where any menu page, such as "About Us," will have a DONATE button for making a single or recurring contribution. Checks made out to “Quakers of Orlando” can be mailed to: Christine Stinson, Treasurer, Orlando Monthly Meeting, P.O. Box 840097, St. Augustine Beach, FL 32080.
