“It was the right time for our organization to redirect resources to support the essential work of these organizations. The current crisis required us to rethink our short-term funding priorities. We encourage other funders to do the same. All we can say is, ‘Thank you and keep up the good work,’ David Newton, board president, said in a prepared statement.

Since 2015, Fellowship has awarded more than $535,000 in grants and donations to support a broad selection of nonprofits. Local beneficiaries have included HiTOPS, Princeton Buddhist Meditation Group, La Convivencia, Princeton Community Housing, Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom, Mt. Pisgah AME Church, Centurion, Elijah’s Promise, Africa Summit at Princeton, and a number of projects associated with Princeton University’s Office of Religious Life.

Fellowship maintains a labyrinth behind its building at 291 Witherspoon St., Princeton, open to the public from dawn to dusk. All are welcome to walk its path.

Fellowship in Prayer is a 71-year-old nonprofit grant-making organization based in Princeton. Its mission is to encourage and support a spiritual orientation to life; promote the practice of prayer, meditation and service to others; and help bring about a deeper spirit of unity among humankind.
