Sue Thomas Turner Quaker Education Fund Committee

The Sue Thomas Turner Quaker Education Fund was established in Baltimore Yearly Meeting in 1996 in recognition of Sue Thomas Turner's long support of Quaker education and Quaker values in public education.  Its purpose is to:

  • support the understanding and use of Quaker faith and practice in school communities
  • support the development of lives lived in the Spirit of Friends by members of school communities

School community members include students, staff, faculty, administration, Trustees, and parents. The Fund is targeted for, but not limited to, Friends schools under the care of a Friends Meeting.

The purpose of Fund grants is to help pay for: 

  • materials, lectures and consultants, workshops and retreats, programs and activities to be brought into a school which explain Quaker faith and practice to members of the school communities
  • individuals or groups from a school community to attend workshops, classes or retreats on Quaker faith and practice
  • the creation and distribution of materials related to Quaker faith and practice by members of a school community 

The funds are limited to uses that are in addition to those already funded by a school or school committee budget, or to augment existing funds for a use that exceeds ordinary funding. Applications from schools, committees, Friends' Meetings, Friends organizations, or individuals must be received by March 1.  The Committee meets once a year and awards grants in April. 

To apply, please send a letter describing your funding request to or by paper mail to 17100 Quaker Lane, Sandy Spring, MD 20860. Your letter should include the EIN for your school or organization as well as information about what additional funding is available to support the project.
