Money, Money. Where's the Money?
An organization cannot operate without money. Achieving a healthy financial position is both a long and short-term goal of GCLS. While we are a non-profit, we must make enough money to pay bills, and invest in our organization for growth and stability. The Executive Director and all board members are responsible for making prudent decisions concerning our finances. To do this, they must have current information. The Director of Finance ensures that everyone has this information.
The financial health of the GCLS is excellent.
Sandy Thornton, Director of Finance, is happy to talk to you about GCLS finances and any questions you may have. You may reach her via email or by submitting a CONTACT form.
GCLS finances deal with more than just "money in, money out" circumstances. As a non-profit organization, there's much to consider.
The monthly financial report is reviewed by the Board prior to our monthly meeting. The financial report requires board approval.
The annual budget is prepared by the Director of Finance and the Executive Director. It is approved by the board of directors.
Financial questions abound! We've gathered some of the most common questions about finance and provided some answers.
