Finance Committee

The Finance Committee meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month. We review the church budget and resolve financial problems that arise during the year.

Our regular duties include the following:

– reviewing the church budget on a monthly basis;

– developing policies and procedures to help us manage church financial resources;

– communicating to the Board and Congregation about the fiscal health of the church;

– working with the Bookkeeper and Treasurer to address and solve financial problems;

– working with the Bookkeeper and Treasurer to prepare a balanced budget for consideration by the Board and Congregation annually;

– working with the Resource & Development Council to support the Stewardship and Fundraising Committees in raising the church’s operating funds; and

– approving unbudgeted expenses as provided in FUUN Financial Policies.

Membership of the Finance Committee includes the Treasurer, the Finance Chair, the former Finance Chair and any other church members with an interest in church financial matters. Attendance at Committee meetings by the Chairs of Fundraising, Stewardship, Resource & Development Council and any other interested church members is encouraged.

FUUN Budget Request Form

Committee, program and staff budget requests are the first step in our fiscal year (July 1st – June 30th) budget process.
  • Instructions to Committee Chairs and Program Leaders: Please submit a budget request to the Finance Committee by March 31st. The budget process: Committee, program and staff budget requests are the first step in our fiscal year (July 1st – June 30th) budget process. The Finance Committee compiles the results of the stewardship campaign, budget requests and other relevant information and presents it to the FUUN Board in May. The Board makes the decisions required to balance the budget and provides a budget recommendation to the Congregation at the June Congregational meeting. The Congregation has the final authority to approve the budget. The amount allocated to your committee or program will be communicated in the final approved budget. Making your request: Providing information about requested funds will help the Finance Committee and Board make informed recommendations (better than just using last year’s budget). Please use the form below to make your request and provide information about any known expenses so we can better understand your needs.   Thank You!
