This year (2022), we are introducing a new Fund Balance module to replace the Fund Balance form you have used in your Charge Conference paperwork for the last three years. This new module is more user-friendly and shows all the funds in a more natural grid-like way, making it easier to update and view your funds information from year to year. Even better, it handles all the calculations and is easy to print and keep for your records!

If at any time you have any tech-related questions about how to fill out this new module, please contact IT Services at (704) 464-0994 or it@wnccumc.org

For "Amount Distributed," enter a positive number for it to subtract from the ending balance.
