Capital Appeal Financial Advisory Subcommittee Report – Submitted by Bob Frymoyer Next meeting on Tbd. Another good month of loan reduction. Now at $148,000.
We received $9,300 in appeal giving, well in excess of our needed $4,100 monthly payment, resulting in a fund balance of $14,000.
So we are able to use every dollar given toward debt reduction,
While most pledge commitments have been met (a few larger ones remain), members are donating well beyond their pledges in some cases and non-pledges giving continues.
SO, don.t be left behind….join with our continued giving beyond or other than your appeal pledges.
Isn’t it nice to be able to write a report like this? Yeah to the generous members here at Trinity!

Appeal Financial Advisory Subcommittee Report – Submitted by Bob Frymoyer Next meeting on TBD. Summary:
1) Please see item number 4 of the Finance Chair's report for updated data through January on the financials related to the appeal and loan balance.
2) Due to strong January giving we ended up the month with an ability to pay down an extra $20,000 on our loan which now has a balance of $148,000 (after February payment, while retaining at least one month debt service payment and all remaining interest due in 2022 in the Appeal Fund).
3) January receipts include several one-time additional contributions beyond pledges as well as annual RMD giving.
4) Receipts from several large pledges likely will not be realized.
However, continued monthly giving may likely be $4,000 to $6,000 per month.
5) SO, PLEASE REMIND OTHERS THAT $1 IN GIVING NOW YIELDS $1 IN DEBT REDUCTION, AND EXERCISE YOUR LEADERSHIP THROUGH YOUR OWN ADDITIONAL GIFTS!

Strategic Planning Report – Submitted by Bob Frymoyer Next meeting on Week of 11/29. We are off and running with our post-COVID strategic plan for Trinity. Our group met on 11/3 and have developed an early draft outline and timetable for the plan, expected to be two years rather than three years in length, thereby coinciding with staff and leadership development. We expect there to be five main goals with related benchmarked and measurable action steps. The tentative timeline is to solicit input and further develop the plan for Council approval in January and to be presented to the congregation at its annual meeting in late January. Matt Bingaman and I will provide a briefing at our meeting on November 9.

Capital Appeal Financial Advisory Group Report – Submitted by Bob Frymoyer Next meeting on Tbd. As a result of letters, telephone calls, and personal contacts we have reduced the amount of our loan. We realized nearly $15,000 in August appeal giving. There is over $90,000 in outstanding pledges and we can expect continued non-pledged giving. We have written and verbal commitments to expect at least $40,000 in “significant” outstanding pledges by the end of the year.
As a result of the above we recommended to the Finance Committee to borrow from existing operating reserves to reduce our external bank loan to $200,000, thereby reducing our monthly debt service payments. The Finance Committee took such action at its meeting last week.
We still will have nearly $700/month in interest due in our loan with amortization amounts in excess of $4,000 monthly. How to meet this obligation into the new year (and reimburse our operating fund) as appeal receipts decline needs to be addressed.

Capital Appeal Financial Subcommittee Report – Submitted by Bob Frymoyer Next meeting on Ongoing. As we move into the final stages of construction, we are increasingly faced with the potential need for borrowing for a period longer than the next few months (current loan balance is approximate $380,000). While revenues continue to be received each month at a reasonable rate ($15,000 for April), we nonetheless continue with an expected shortfall, likely in at least the $200,000 range. We are optimistic that our May “bring us over the finish line to be debt free” initiative, including multi-media efforts, letters to specifically focused congregational groups, and the May 23 Open House, will help to reduce our exposure. We will be in a better position to know after these efforts and thereby the extent to which we will need to address debt service from other revenue sources.

The month's appeal receipts were $16,000; monthly average giving this year has been $19,000. Payment for construction costs was $158,000 for the month leaving a balance of $348,000 in our Appeal account. With the advent of the second phase of construction we can soon expect our need to borrow from our construction loan since the pace of receipts will fall behind invoices.
We are reviewing pledge performance to determine if the remaining non-receipted pledged dollars can be realistically expected within our timeframe and to potentially contact individuals who may not giving per their pledges.
We also are planning an approach to contact members who may be able to pledge at this time.
