This will allow us to confirm scheduling and to insure proper accounting is done. The following major church fundraisers are exempt from using this form as they are already scheduled and have accounting practices in place: the Country Fair and the Talent Auction.

Financing Large Projects

Committees and members proposing projects over $1000 must complete and submit a FCU Project Finance Sheet to the Clerk, Treasurer, and Standing Committee. The project must be approved before work can begin.
