Hello, Unity Community!
What a wonderful community we have here in Central Oregon! My first year as Treasurer has blessed and enriched my life. It’s my responsibility to provide financial oversight, planning and budgeting, financial reporting and financial information to the board to make the best decisions.
I am grateful to share a few highlights of the first 9 months of 2020. What a year! The first nine months of 2020 donations has equaled our budget! And our budget was ambitious. We had a large increase in members signing up for auto donations, increased giving through simple church and donations from outside Central Oregon and continued support from our members.
As you might expect, our revenue from events and space rental has been negligible and below our forecast.
We have been able to keep our expenses 8% below budgets and commit funds to some special projects. We are currently at a break even for the year that is better than we had budgeted.
Our board also allocated funds to update and improve our website making it more user friendly. We allocated funds to build the labyrinth and beautify the grounds. We have continued to tithe 10% of our income to Unity Worldwide, Unity Ministries, Unity Northwest and Local charities.
Thank you for your continued support. I’m blessed to be part of such a giving ministry! Please e-mail me with any questions or comments. To see a copy of our financial statement or if you have questions, please contact me.
Treasurer, Board of Directors
