Hi Cascadians, Alex, and Kacie,
I have made some corrections and clarifications to our draft grant
financial report for the grant which covers part of 2015 and all of 2016.
The draft may be found at
We originally requested a grant of $6,765.81, and we anticipated a higher
level of programmatic activity than we actually executed. By my most recent
accounting, we actually spent $4,046.65 of the grant funds, so I recommend
that we plan to return the difference ($2,719.16) to WMF.
I believe that we will need to return the unspent funds, and have WMF
accept the report, before WMF will issue another grant to CWUG. I believe
that in the short term we are still financially OK, but we will are likely
to exhaust our funds later this year unless we get new income. Our biggest
scheduled expense for later this year is the renewal of our general
I am leaving the report marked as a draft at this time, although I believe
that future changes are likely to be minor. I have a meeting scheduled with
Kacie tomorrow to discuss this report and get a list of any business that
needs to be addressed before WMF accepts the report. I am available for
questions, both on list and in private.
