Quaker Peace & Social Witness (QPSW) awards grants to innovative Quaker or Quaker-supported projects focused on building sustainability and the new economy.

We hope to enable projects that help to create low-carbon, sustainable communities and a different type of economic system – an economic system in which Quaker testimony can flourish.
