Note again that the software we use “straight lines” all budget items over 12 months, so changes in utility costs and other expenses as well as income lines, particularly preschool payments that tend to come in all at once at the beginning and end of the year, are not reflected in the budget as such. We have transferred $60,000 from the operating endowment this year as reflected on the income statement, and we transferred this amount back to the endowment in early January 2021.
