Financial Report for October 2013

The tables below show our overall financial condition as of the end of October. Donations of $100,433 from churches and individuals were $38,960 above the $61,473 October budget for these types of unrestricted contributions. Expenses of $86,800 were $1,202 below the $88,002 budgeted for expenses. We praise God and thank His people for one of the best outpourings of support for any October. 

November and December are traditionally the months for our annual Thanksgiving and Year-end financial outreach. This year our goal is $165,000. We depend on God's people and faithful churches for a major portion of our yearly income during these two months. We seek, D.V., to replenish our reserve fund which is vital to easing seasonal cash flow fluctuations. Furthermore, funds are needed future faculty additions. Finally, we encourage churches at this time of year to consider keeping or adding GPTS to their external giving budgets for 2014.

Remember, gifts to GPTS are tax-deductible and may include cash, securities, property or a variety of planned giving instruments. SENIORS PLEASE NOTE information about IRA Charitable Rollovers in 2013, as explained here.
