Books are balanced and the budget is published.
2019 goal was to get to a budget of $100,000. We met the goal! Made the goal on top of our largest one-of donation.
Budget is primarily spent on people and programming.
Discussed how Amanda’s salary should grow. She’s underpaid compared to this kind of position in a more established organization, but we also want to keep our people cost balanced without other expenses. Amanda’s annual review is in March. Considered an additional review later in the year.
A side discussion about whether Tom could start serving a Hanky Panky in order to lure Paul Sulway into helping out with ads.
Equipment cost: Lots of big ticket items last year that will last years. Hard to exactly predict the expenses so planning to remain consistent.
2020 emphasis on fundraising is about significantly growing our grant income.
Expect to maintain a relationship with Josef Krebs and company for consulting and grant writing.
VOTE: In favour of the budget for 2020. Passed.
VOTE: Formalise accounting of 2019 numbers. Passed..
