For the first quarter of the fiscal year 2020 (October 1 – December 31, 2019) DignityUSA reported operating income of $15,812 compared to a budgeted income of $5,413. The positive results and variance from budget were attributed to higher income than expected of approximately $8,000 from some large annual donations to the Guardian Angels plan, a successful Advent Appeal that delivered about $2,000 more than planned and $3,000 more in other donations, including one large unrestricted contribution.
Expenses ran about $2,000 under budget due to the timing of travel expenses.
Sixty-two members of Dignity/Dayton’s Living Beatitudes Community, Christ Episcopal Church and First Baptist Church of Dayton attended a daylong Retreat on Aging on Saturday, January 12, 2020.
The Retreat on Aging was an excellent session on both the practical and spiritual facets of aging, with topics on care and aging in place, the legal aspects of aging (power of attorney, healthcare power of attorney and other medical issues), as well as what happens when 911 is called for an elderly person.
