CP 2% above budget projection


NASHVILLE (BP) Year-to-date contributions to Southern Baptist national and international missions and ministries received by the SBC Executive Committee are $31,959,358.96, or 2% more than the year-to-date SBC Cooperative Program Allocation Budget projection, and are 6.35% above contributions received during the same time frame last year, according to a news release from SBC Executive Committee President and Chief Executive Officer Frank S. Page.

The year-to-date total represents money received by the Executive Committee by the close of the last business day of November and includes receipts from state conventions, churches and individuals for distribution according to the 2014-15 SBC Cooperative Program Allocation Budget.

The $31,959,358.96 received by the Executive Committee from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30 for distribution through the Cooperative Program Allocation Budget is $1,909,105.56 more than the $30,050,253.40 received through the end of November 2013 and $626,025.63 more than the $31,333,333.33 year-to-date budgeted amount to support Southern Baptist ministries globally and across North America.

Designated giving of $7,315,431.74 for the same year-to-date period is 5.90%, or $407,785.80, above the $6,907,645.94 received at this point last year. This total includes only those gifts received and distributed by the Executive Committee and does not reflect designated gifts contributed directly to SBC entities.
