Our Finances


Our mission is carried out by two sister organizations:  The Friends Committee on Legislation of California (FCLCA) and the FCL Education Fund.

Friends Committee on Legislation of California (FCLCA)

FCLCA is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit that engages primarily in lobbying. Our tax I.D. number is 94-1222456.

FCLCA receives funding from some of the Quaker Meetings and churches in California (about 8% of our budget); our primary source of income is contributions from individuals, including annual gifts and bequests.  Generous bequests over the last five years have allowed us to expand our grassroots and online program, supplementing the income we receive each year from supporters.  We receive no government funding, and as a 501(c)(4) organization (rather than a (501)(c)(3) charity) we are not eligible for foundation grants.

Basically, we rely on the partnership and generosity of contributing members like you!

The FCL Education Fund

The FCL Education Fund conducts charitable educational work associated with our mission of promoting justice and civic participation in California’s political process.  Contributions to the FCL Education Fund are tax-deductible (Tax ID Number 68-0062639).  FCL Education Fund employs no staff itself, but compensates FCLCA for educational program work performed by FCLCA staff.
