Waging peace has been a generations-long tradition for the Lloyd family. It’s a tradition that includes a history of giving to AFSC.

The Lloyd siblings—Lola Lloyd Horwitz, Robin Lloyd, Dr. William Bross Lloyd, and Christopher Lloyd—are all AFSC benefactors who have supported the mission and vision of AFSC for decades.

Martha Gwyn, a lifetime contributor

Born to a Quaker family in an Indiana house that had been a station on the Underground Railroad, Martha Gwyn heard mention of AFSC in her formative years. But her personal involvement really started in the 1940s when she was a student at Earlham College.

“The work camp movement made a big impression on me,” Martha says. “It accomplished things. It made friends. It contributed to a community in nearly every case. It did lots of things.”
