2017 PICPC Budget & Request for Funds

2017 Proposed Budget total:                   $858.00

Left over Balance from 2016:             $227.99

Funds Requested from Intergroup:         $630.01

Plan for funds in 2017:

Big Books                                        $342.00

    • In 2016, we had the opportunity to attend a number of events where we handed out another 2 cases of soft cover Big Books (40). We are continually being contacted to do more events, so we’d like to plan on replacing the 2 cases for next year’s events.

Grapevines                                        $216.00

    • In 2014, we purchased subscriptions of grapevines for 2 years (2015-2016) for 2 Lincoln Libraries. We’d like to renew those subscriptions for 2 more years ($108.00)
    • We’d like to purchase 2 boxes of old grapevines to share at PI events. We’d also like to take advantage of being able to send mail to military overseas and will send old grapevines there too. (30 for $54)

Pamphlets                                        $200.00

    • We continue to expand the number of events we attend, or groups we speak with. We’ve also been creating packets for clergy and doctors and handing them out personally, or at events. We’ve decided to expand and hand out literature to military, police and fire, so we’ll need to order more pamphlets for those, along with keeping our inventory stocked.

Printing costs/Supplies/Miscellaneous                        $100.00

    • To cover printing costs (need to provide copies of minutes to intergroup each month). We’d like to make fliers to let AA members know about our committee also. This will cover any additional expenses that may come up.
