All contributions are tax-deductible.
Even if you can't donate time or money yourself, you may know others who can. Please help us by posting the following materials on your Meeting or church bulletin board and in other public places:
A Fun Project for Kids
We have created a fun project perfect for a Religious Education or Sunday school class, or anyone who wants to help QWI. It is a template for a small cardboard church that is also a collection box for donations to QWI. To open and print this "pdf" file, you will need to download the Adobe Acrobat Reader which is available free from Adobe for most computer platforms. This project works best if printed from a PostScript printer onto card stock.
Pass Out Our Brochure
Contact the Director at the main office if you would like to order copies of our brochure to pass out or to keep in your Meeting.
Organize Your Own Workcamp
In the past we have held workshops for those interested in organizing their own workcamps, and we've assembled a workbook and other materials that may be helpful. Contact the Director at the main office if you are interested.
Each workcamp project has special positions to be filled including Project Director, Volunteer Coordinator, Friends in Residence, Cook, and Safety Officer. (See Who's in charge? in the Workcamp FAQ.) If you think you qualify for any of these positions, please contact the Director at the QWI main office.
