Prologue
Bishop Michael Hawkins set the context for the proposal for Council of the North funding. Council bishops have been working on criteria for grant allocation and have recognized the need for greater accountability to each other as bishops and dioceses within the Council and to the General Synod and other donors. Funding from General Synod is guaranteed until the end of 2011. Council Bishops have proposed an orderly reduction in funding that would allow the Council to become less dependent on the Grant in an orderly way and allow for future planning. Bishop Hawkins said that while it is hoped that total funding will increase over five years, it will only come from new sources and new initiatives.
Text
That the Council of the North proposal for funding over the next five years, at a reduced rate of 5% per year (based on the prior year’s grant), to be reviewed by the Council of General Synod in 3 years time, be given consideration as part of the budget 2012 process.
CARRIED #15-03-11
Notes
The Primate expressed thanks to the Financial Management Committee and to Council of the North Bishops for developing the proposal and presenting it to COGS. Members expressed appreciation by applause.
