We are a network of volunteers.  You can join us simply by sending an email to can support us in several ways:


Membership of QAN is currently free.   We rely on donations.  

From time to time we also fundraise for particular projects supported by QAN. We have recently been glad to receive external funding to support elements of the Loving Earth Project which QAN initiated and has underwritten financially.  

We are currently seeking to raise funds to support the cost of hiring and running a QAN gazebo at Greenbelt 2024. If you would like to donate specifically for this, please indicate this to the treasurer – see below.  

Please consider making a donation to Quaker Arts Network. If you plan to hold a fundraising event, please let us know. 


Payments for donations or purchases can also be made directly to our account at CAF bank:

Account Name: Quaker Arts Network
Sort Code: 40-52-40
Account Number: 00036979

If you make a payment by BACS, please email to tell them whether the payment is to support a particular project, such as the Loving Earth Project, to pay for a purchase or booking, or a donation for general purposes . 

Cheques should be made out to Quaker Arts Network and sent to the QAN Treasurer, Cherry Simpkin, 78 Courtlands Avenue, London, SE12 8JA. Please let her know what the payment is for.

As we are a Quaker Recognised  Body (recognised by Britain Yearly Meeting) Meetings are able to make donations to QAN. Donations from individuals are also most welcome. We have recently become a registered charity, number 1202268, and are preparing to set up a Gift Aid scheme.
