Q1 FINANCIAL UPDATE
5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR FIRST QUARTER FINANCES
- Our 2019 budget is about 2.6% ($27,000) greater than our 2018 giving.
- Our first quarter giving was down about $5,000 compared to last year.
- To stay on track to meet our budget we should have been up $5,600 compared to last year.
- The cold weather in the first quarter hurt financially – we had extra costs for heating, and for snow removal and deicing of our campus.
- Your session and staff are watching the 2019 finances closely, and we will make adjustments as required.
