Financial Report for September 2014

The tables below indicate our financial situation as of the end of September 2014. Thus far this fiscal year, we have accumulated a general fund deficit of $58,154. This is likely the result of several factors, including the absence thus far of donations from several traditionally large benefactors and a downturn in tuition receipts due to a growing number of students studying under our tuition waiver program (see last month's story for further explanation).

Unrestricted general fund donations during September of $31,838 from churches and individuals were $32,021 below the $63,859 September budget for these types of contributions. Expenses of $70,554 were $19,361 below the $89,915 budgeted for expenses.
