SCSM FINANCIAL STATUS AT THE END OF 2016

 

SCSM TREASURER’S REPORT – 2016

PREPARED BY ARVID M. DANIELSEN

We once again rejoice in the way the Lord has blessed the ministry of Spiritual Care Support Ministries (SCSM).  While our income in 2016 was approximately $3500 lower than in 2015, our expenses were also lower than in 2015 by approximately $1500.  Due to the lower income for 2016, we experience a deficit of approximately $650.

The Table below shows the Income and Expenditures for each year since we opened in 2004.  The 2004 data reflects only a partial year (8 months) that the SCSM Center in Warrenton was open.  Overall, for this 12 year – 8 month period, our Total Income and Total Expenditures have now both exceeded $1,000,000 while the overall Net Income for this period is nearly $9500.

As in all previous years, the SCSM Board (including the President and CEO) are all “volunteers” and do not receive any compensation.  We have had two part-time employees (administrator and receptionist) for approximately the last three years.  However, we hope to add another part-time employee this year to serve as our volunteer coordinator.  We do not charge for any of our services and we rely primarily on donations from individuals and churches to meet our needs.

May God bless you as you continue to pray for and support this ministry.  Thank you for standing with us as we meet the needs of those that are ill, dying, grieving, and have experienced losses in their lives as well as those that are “journeying” with them.
