November's Treasurer Report

There were no unusual items to point out in the financials for the month of November.  When comparing this month's Profit and Loss Statement with October, there was an approximate $4,000 increase in net income, due to increased literature sales and decreased overhead/salaries. Note that there are two cost centers shown - one for the Distribution Center and one for the Admin Cost Center.

October 2013 Treasurer's Report

While it would be clever to be able to start this month’s report with something witty and different, finance is finance. And you just want the facts.

July 2013 Treasurer's Report

As our Profit and Loss Statement shows, the Distribution Center generated a profit of $2,056.86 in July. This figure is derived by subtracting the 7th Tradition donations ($3,800.07) and eBook sales ($1,592.42) from the Net Income of $7,449.35.   The amounts shown in the Balance Sheet under Savings are all accounted for as a Prudent Reserve of $40,000 and the remainder for Website redesign and a move to a new Shopping Cart, as well as costs of producing other literature, such as the the Meditation Book and finishing the Audio BRB.  Note that the Donations Received tab on the left has a list of previous month's Donations.
