It’s Time for Phase 2 of Our Vision for the Future of Quakers!

Thanks to your help, we have had a remarkable impact on the future of Friends… in just one year! Please read on to see what we’ve accomplished together, and how we can keep up this momentum.

Our Progress So Far

We launched our first project in the Spring of 2023: a weekly Quaker podcast.

It was a long road to get there! First, we had to do all this stuff (with support from Friends all over the world!)

☑️ Establish ourselves as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit
☑️ Develop a board of trustees
☑️ Hire a podcast producer
☑️ Raise $215k (THANK YOU!!)
☑️ Develop the concept, design, and content of Season 1
☑️ Launch the podcast

The Next Phase

The next step is to expand our vision to include 2 additional projects. 

Each project will work with the podcast to create an interlocking ecosystem of faithful online Quaker presence, boosting the visibility of the Religious Society of Friends and realizing our potential as ministers in the Internet Age.

It won’t be easy! Here are our goals:

🔲 Raise $300k
🔲 Launch the Daily Quaker (a daily Quaker devotional for Quakers and seekers to take the next step on their Quaker spiritual path… and the next one after that!)
🔲 Launch our Monthly Meeting Video Partnership Project (teaming up with local meetings to tell their stories and boost their visibility within their communities)

We are happy to report that, thanks to the generosity of our listeners and a grant from the Shoemaker Fund, we are already half way to our financial goal! So that “raise $300K” looks more like this:

☑️ Raise $25k from podcast listeners
☑️ $125k Grant from Shoemaker
🔲 Raise $150k in other gifts

How Can I Help?

Will you help us reach our goal and expand the reach of this uniquely 21st century Quaker ministry?

Thee Quaker Project is a brand new Quaker startup, founded in 2022. We seek ways to be faithful Friends in the internet age. Much like the Early Quaker movement, our goal is to explore how to be “publishers of truth” in a time of dramatically changing communications technology.

“So excited for this project. Great people with a strong spiritual leading.Thanks for bringing this to the world!”
