Church Financials

St Paul's Episcopal Church
Executive Summary - May 2024, Financials
Provided by Randy Young

Income was $61.3K for the month of May vs budgeted $28.2K* for a $33.1K favorable balance.
 
Summary:  May 2024 saw a brief departure from the deficit cash flows experienced during the previous 4 months. A good portion of this month's income was from a single pledge source. I have an asterisk next to the budgeted income to show that even with this budgeted income we were still facing a $129K annual deficit. Expenses were down slightly down from the budgeted amount for the month. This was in spite of our having a $4.5K clergy salary overage from still paying Fr. Dan and the addition of Fr. Christian's payment. To still come in under budget for total monthly expenses even with the additional salary expense is remarkable.
 
Year to date income through May 2024 is $205.8 vs budgeted $197.8 for a favorable balance of $8K
Year to date expenses through May 2024 is $246.2 for a YTD deficit of <$40.4K>
