Working with funds from bequests and the Sharing Fund, World Ministries Committee (WMC) supports the ministry of New York Yearly Meeting (NYYM) Friends in the wider world. Persons or organizations applying for funds should write to us with a sense of ministry, that is, with a vision of what is to be done in order to spread the Quaker message of love to the wider world.
