With the new year, our 2019 Stewardship campaign has ended, although new pledges (or renewals) will be welcome at any time.
As of December 31, 2018, we have received 91 pledges, 12 of which are new (did not pledge last year). The total amount pledged through the end of the year was $300,930. We are still 10 pledges below 2018, but our average per pledge is up about $400.
In terms of the 2018 budget, as of the end of the year, we had received about $289,931. Although not everyone fully paid their pledges, the number of people who overpaid offset these, so we slightly exceeded our expected pledge goal (of $289,458).
