Salida Sangha 2015 Financial Summary
The Salida Sangha was in good financial health at the end of 2015. For income, we budgeted $10,200 for Pledges and weekly Sit Dana and received $10,479. We budgeted $10,020 for expenses and spent $12,226.21. The $2,206.21 difference was due to one time expenses for the Sangha House, rental of the Community Center for a public talk, and an unbudgeted donation to the kitchen staff at Blazing Mountain where we held our March 2015 residential retreat. Our cash balance as of 12/31/2015 was $14,356 which includes $384 for the Non-Residential Retreat Reserve, $726 for the Repair & Maintenance Reserve, and $434 in the Scholarship Fund.
