Our Program Fees are based on a Pay-As-Led model. We want you to attend our programs and we invite you to consider how much you are ably to comfortably pay, using the suggested tiered donations amounts below. If you are part of a Friends Meeting or another faith community, we ask that you inquire about possible scholarship assistance from them. Many Meetings are glad to support members of their community i attending Quaker Center programs.

These series offer three to six weekly sessions of 90 minutes each, exploring different aspects of a subject, one day per week across a month.

As with our in-person programs, we try not to turn anyone away for lack of funds. Please let us know if these costs represent an obstacle or a hardship.
