(ENS) Report lists dioceses’ financial support of Episcopal Church 2012 budget

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Just more than 41 percent of the Episcopal Church’s dioceses and regional areas have committed to contributing the full amount asked of them to fund the wider church’s 2012 budget.

According to a report posted June 21 here on the website of the church’s Finance Office, 46 of 111 entities reporting will pay 19 percent or more in 2012. Six of those dioceses have pledged to pay more than what is known as “the asking,” and which for this year is 19 percent of diocesan income.

Read it all and make sure to follow the link to the documentation on individual dioceses.

The Diocese of Dallas gives 0%, but some of the parishes in the diocese give directly to ECUSA. Those parishes that do not give to ECUSA are expected to give to a charity or ministry of their choice in lieu of the ECUSA donation. This has been true for many years now.

I noticed under South Carolina there was another line, South Carolina-Other. I am not sure who is donating under that guise. I am guessing these are individuals who are supportive of the national TEC leadership. Still very glad that the diocese gives minimally (.6%) to TEC.  I wonder if Dioceses can ‘direct’ their pledge to certain ministries.
