SGS Treasurer Financial Report

November 19, 2021

Please Contribute Before 2021 is over 

You have 41 days left to make your last-minute donations!  Time is running out ( ͡~ ͜ʖ ͡°). Your donations account for 49% of our building needs. They are essential in maintaining our center. Thank You! 

Future ExpensesProgress on fund raising to repairing the siding on the South side of our building.

Through November members have contributed $4,172. Combined with $7000 of the income set aside from our iTrips rentals we now have $11,172 saved for that project.  We now need to raise an additional $10,828 in order to have the $22,000 needed for this project. We are nearly one half of the way to this goal.  Who will help us there?

Building Repairs Fund

We are grateful for members who already have contributed to this fund – over and above their regular contributions-to this fund. Earmark your checks for any portion of your donation you wish to go to our building fund.

Building Rentals

We had 19 days of rentals in November bringing in rental income of approximately $3,509. This will be deposited in December after the income statement is finalized. Due to the continued ability of iTrips to bring in renters for Spring Street Center, the committee agreed to set aside an additional $1,000 into the Building Repairs Fund and to increase our donation to the region to its pre-pandemic level of $800 per month.

This Month’s Donation Report

I am unable to determine the level of giving for November, as we are meeting early to avoid meeting over the Thanksgiving weekend.  Donations through October were back to your normal level of giving. 

Considering donating for the 1st time –  Your Donation will go directly to Subud PNW

Your committee believes that all members should help contribute to our center and through it to the region.  For those who haven’t yet contributed this year, we’re making the following offer:

Every contribution from anyone who hasn’t contributed this year will go to Subud PNW. These contributions will help Subud PNW to support, among other areas, the following:

– SPNW’s commitment to SUSA and through it to our national cultural wing (SICA) and charity wing (SDUSA)

– SUSA contributions to the World Subud Association, which supports a Caring Fund, helping members in distress and funds International Helper Travel.  

Each year SPNW has relied on extra money from our annual kedjiwan gathering at the Menucha Conference Center to support the work of the region. Due to COVID-19 it has not been possible to hold this event for two years.
