Financial Report for September 2012

Capital Campaign Goal Reached!

In 2003, Greenville Seminary launched "Building On an Old Foundation," our first capital campaign to raise funds for the purchase and renovation of Old Taylors High School, a dilapidated, abandoned but structurally sound landmark on Main Street in Taylors, S.C. By 2008, through God's grace and the generosity of His people, GPTS was able to occupy the elegant new campus where our theological education ministry now thrives.

The original goal for the campaign was $3 million, a figure that was later raised to $3.5 million as the true extent of the need became clearer and financing costs grew beyond expectations. God's people have responded wonderfully since the campaign began. We now rejoice to report that, when past receipts and outstanding long-term pledges are combined, the amended goal of the campaign has been reached!

You will note from the chart below, however, that although the campaign goal has been reached, the actual amount needed to completely amortize the mortgage has not yet been achieved, largely for the same reasons the original goal was extended. Recently our monthly payment has been significantly reduced, taking some pressures off our General Fund. As of the end of last month, our remaining mortgage stands at $889,794. Your help in alleviating this obligation would be greatly appreciated.
