Information about the moratorium on grant giving
Dundee Friends' Property Trust has traditionally supported organisations whose aims and objectives reflect Quaker testimonies of peace, simplicity and truth. The Trust currently has a moratorium on grant giving - agreed by Trustees on 31-08-18. This is due to the Trust's financial situation with regards to changes in tenancies and the planned works in the basement and ground floor of the Dundee Meeting House in Whitehall Crescent.
Members and Attenders of the Religious Society of Friends in Dundee, Perth and St Andrews Local Meetings should apply to the Treasurer of East of Scotland Area Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends for any grants.
