Year-end Financial Report

Greenville Seminary closed out the first half of its 2013-2014 fiscal year on December 31st with a wonderful outpouring of support from our faithful contributors. The November-December 2013 year-end financial outreach raised nearly $132,000, some $33,000 short of our goal of $165,000, but still a noteworthy show of support. We deeply appreciate all who gave generously and sacrificially to help assure that the ministry of this unique theological school will go forward in 2014. Your gift this month will help us realize the year-end goal of $165,000 needed to see us through the often fiscally austere winter months.

General fund contributions from individuals and churches for calendar year 2013 totaled $1,061,874, compared with $1,060,879 during 2012. The 2013 donations were $108,175 above the $953,699 we had budgeted for that source of income during 2013. Income from all sources totaled $1,313,259 in 2013, compared with $1,322,923 in 2012. As can be seen, GPTS depends on contributions for the vast majority of our operating needs.

The tables below show our overall financial condition for the current fiscal year as of the end of December 2013. (These are preliminary numbers which are likely to increase as December postmarked contributions are received. Tables will be updated accordingly.) Unrestricted general fund donations in December of $119,740 from churches and individuals were $58,267 above the $61,473 December budget for these types of unrestricted contributions. Expenses of $92,322 were $4,320 above the $88,002 budgeted for expenses. (The seminary's current fiscal year runs from July 1, 2013 through June 30, 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 hereSee here for information about planning your last will and testament with the Kingdom of God in mind.
