$ and Sense
Whiile Wall Street may have recently been jumping with joy as trading mounted, what you saw down at the League office as a case of the jitters. Your treasurer had shocked a lot of the powers-that-be by severely depleting the savings account. "Is it true....is it true....we don't have any money?!" No, it's not that bad; but we are cutting it pretty tight.
Aside from approximately $1200 per month expenses (office, staff and program), we have two large pledges we make. One is our PMP (per member payment) to LWVUS from whom we receive so many good publication and who lobbies and litigates and educates for us, and $2500 to LWV Hawaii which carries forward so many of the terrific programs we identify with: Juvenile Justice Study, Natural Resources, Campaign Spending laws, etc. Of course, some of that money returns to us in the form of shared expenses for a good portion of the overhead. These obligations average out to about $440 a month.
SO WHERE ARE WE GETTING NEARLY $1650 IN INCOME EVERY MONTH?
Dues do not begin to cover it.
But they are an important part.
WE DEPEND ON:
THAT LEAVES US WITH A DEFICIT OF $700 A MONTH. WHERE DO WE GET IT?
Prospectus: The next couple of months may be a bit precarious. We can get through November and December without drawing on savings as long as the dues and membership contributions keep pouring in. Our final quarterly pledges to State and National League may have to wait for that big vote count. As of this date, our savings account holds $2,288 and our checking account, $342.
We do look forward to a more Profitable spring, but we would certainly appreciate some help in the meantime.
