We estimate that it costs the members of our Church about $120 an hour to keep the building and facilities open for the community. This cost includes utilities, insurance, maintenance, repairs and janitorial/management services. Rising fuel costs mean that this cost is even higher in the winter.
In order to keep the building open for all, we require groups using space to contribute financially according to the donation schedule below.
We are often approached by organizations requesting a modified fee based on the fact that they are non-profit organizations or organizations which serve people with minimum to no fees. As a religious non-profit organization we recognize the unique financial challenges we all face. We also have a strong commitment to the stewardship of our resources and we take our financial responsibilities and the stewardship of our facilities seriously. We are currently in the process of renovation and upgrading our spaces for the good of the whole community at considerable expense to the congregation. At this time we cannot modify minimum rates for non-profit groups except under very special circumstances.
* Exceptions to fees are at the discretion of the Rector. In an exception, if the space is provided at a reduced rate or donated, the user is expected to leave the space in as clean a condition as it was found with all paper and garbage properly disposed of.
