With generous support from the Thomas H. & Mary Williams Shoemaker Fund, Friends Fiduciary is now offering online giving options for meetings and small Quaker organizations through a custom webpage for each participating organization to highlight and encourage giving through simple and convenient means. Currently, a handful of meetings are serving as first adopters to vet the new giving portal and custom giving webpages.
Friends Fiduciary is also continuing its active witness to Quaker values via its shareholder engagement program. One focus area is just transition—meaning an equitable transition to a low-carbon economy that takes workers and communities into account. Friends Fiduciary has joined other investors led by the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility to engage with utility companies, asking that they responsibly move away from fossil fuel without leaving workers behind while also centering on the concerns of communities, particularly communities of color, in their planning processes. The investor coalition has engaged many stakeholders, including unions and environmental justice groups, in an effort to ensure that investors are connected with and accountable to the people who are most impacted.
