Budget Reports in Extranet

HNP Communications Friar News

NEW YORK — Current budget information, updated financial reports and forms are now available on the portion of the Province’s Web site used by friars.

HNP treasurer Dennis Wilson, OFM, recently announced to friars that the following information can be accessed on the HNP Extranet:

• Approved operations budgets for the General Fund, Sick, Aged, and Retired Trust, and the Education and Formation Trust

• In next fiscal year’s Franciscan Mass League and Transfer (Support), the amounts are found in the FY2010 General Fund Budget. Retirement contribution amounts are found in the FY2010 Sick, Aged and Retired Trust Budget.

• Friaries and offices receiving primary income from the General Fund or a Trust will find their approved budget amounts in one of the budgets listed.

These reports are found in the “Documents” section under the primary heading of “Approved FY2010 Budgets.” Friars needing assistance in navigating these reports may contact Dennis at the Provincial Office, 646-473-0265 ext. 350.

By early next year, form-filled documents will be available online, Dennis said.
