The no-load Quaker Family of Funds of Valley Forge, Pa., wants to switch to selling its six funds with a sales charge.

The funds decided to stop offering shares of the Quaker Funds without a sales charge as of June 16, according to a preliminary proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission May 2. Instead, the fund family is asking shareholders to approve a change that will convert its no-load shares to shares sold with a front-end charge, according to the proxy statement. The funds also plan to offer shares with a back-end sales charge, or class B shares, and a level load, or class C shares, according to the proxy statement.
