Following is additional information on our income resources and expenditures.
During the last years there has been a decreased proportion of US gifts in our budget and we hope and are attempting to keep that process moving.
Here is the distribution of income resources with the combined Seminary and TAT budgets of 2018. Total expenses are $ 645,110 USD. The proportion attributed to US gifts is 29%.
We are very thankful for all of the TAT Match Fund donors who helped us to meet our financial needs during the last 3 years. The Match Fund commitments ended with the year 2017 and we could not have met our financial obligations without your assistance. You raised through the Match Fund approx. $40,000 in a year.
May 11th, 2018 will take place the first TAT and Seminary fundraising banquet in Estonia. Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 USD. We are looking for matching partners for this event to make it more successful and to encourage Estonian people to give. During the fall LCMC conference, Mount Calvary Lutheran hosted the first annual Friends of Estonia Summit, and many indicated enthusiasm for our upcoming event with several pledging support already.
If you would like to partner with us, please send your donation through the East European Missions Network or Charity Lutheran Church before April 15th, with the designation on the memo line "TAT Fundraising Match".
2017 annual budget of TAT $ 219,294 USD
