Final DSF 2018 Report
Well, we were close but we didn't make our goals for DSF 2018.
We had fewer participants than last year and did not crack the 500 pledges mark. That seems to be a benchmark for making the financial goal. As it is, and to the point, we had about 20% of the parish households make a DSF Pledge and about 80% did not bother. I am deeply grateful to the households who have made the sacrifice for the larger Church of the Archdiocese. And I will go back to school to learn how to motivate the 2,000 households who chose not to make a pledge.
We came close to meeting our financial goal, falling about 15k short. So, we are going to have to take that 15k out of our annual operating budget. Something will have to be cut. I don't know yet what. I will let you know soon.
