The Sandy Spring Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends is a non-profit, tax-exempt religious organization.
As such, we believe that the stewardship of our resources is a reflection of our faith and practice, and we recognize certain fiscal obligations to our members and the community.
To assist in the governance of the Meeting, we have set forth the operational policies and procedures by which the Meeting manages its financial affairs. The guidelines document good accounting practices in handling receipts and contributions; disbursements and purchases; investments; endowment and restricted funds; reconciliation of accounts; record retention; budgeting; and financial reports to the membership. The guidelines are intended to be used in conjunction with the Meeting’s Manual of Procedures.
The Finance Guidelines of Sandy Spring Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends were approved by the Meeting Dec. 4, 2016, and is openly available to all interested parties (click the link to open the document).
