The 2015 Stewardship Campaign is nearly completed. There are just a few loose ends to tie up. We have received pledges or waiver requests from 97 percent of People’s people, and raised 90 percent of the budget requests. Many thanks to the Stewardship Steering Committee for their outstanding efforts and to you for your generous response!
However, this leaves a substantial gap (approximately 10 percent) between our projected income and expenses for next year. The Finance Committee and the Board of Trustees will be working in the next few weeks to bridge that gap and bring you a budget proposal for review at the Annual Meeting on May 17.
We are also falling behind on contributions to the Annual Fund. Through the end of March, we have received 70 percent of annual pledges for 75 percent of the fiscal year. That means we are about $17,000 behind schedule. With all the excitement of calling a new minister, please do not forget to make your regular payments on pledges.
If you are a new member, or were not able to join in our campaign, please contact Treasurer Allan Hunt by e-mail at email@example.com to discuss your participation.
