Financials and Annual Reports

FCNL and the FCNL Education Fund continue to benefit from the generosity of our supporters, directly through Annual Fund giving and indirectly through the gifts for operations from the capital campaign.

Annual Reports

The generous support of FCNL’s community ensured that fiscal year 2017 was a strong year. Our endowment is growing thanks to prudent investing and the success of our capital campaign. These, combined with increased donor contributions, have allowed FCNL to invest more into our programs that further the world we seek. Gifts to the capital campaign have funded the launch of the Advocacy Corps, an increase in participation in Spring Lobby Weekend, and stronger young adult programs.

This generosity has enabled the organization to increase our program spending by 7% in 2017 and to complete the construction of the Quaker Welcome Center without drawing down reserves or externally financing the project.
