The Unitarian Universalist Church West’s Finance Committee oversees the financial operation of the Church. The committee includes Peter Geiss, Marilyn Kupka, Mark Steinberg, Board Liaison Erich Zuern, Treasurer Leslie Peterson, and Committee Chair Deb Ritchie-Kolberg. Recently, the committee solicited an outside auditor, Terrence Rice, CPA, to complete an audit of the church’s financial statements.
The opinion section of Mr. Rice’s audit report reads: “In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Unitarian Universalist Church West as of April 30, 2023, and the changes in its net assets for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.” So, all good.
In addition, Mr. Rice made six recommendations for becoming more effective stewards of the financial resources of the church. The Finance Committee will address these recommendations over the next few months.
