Treasurer's Reports

We post quarterly financial reports on approximately 1/1, 4/1, 7/1, and 10/1. The funds are overseen by two co-treasurers. Our prudent reserve is one year’s expenses, and as we fund new projects, we also increase the prudent reserve. (The current 2022 prudent reserve is $1300 and is not reflected in the finances below, as this kitty is in a savings account meant to be used only in a dire emergency!)
