2015 Priests for Life Audit

Summary from Priests for Life Accountant

Priests for Life’s annual audit examination of 2015 was recently completed by its independent certified public accounting firm—Brookes & Associates. I am pleased to announce that after examining our financial statements, the firm issued an unqualified opinion regarding their accuracy and the financial controls that we have in place. This is the 12th consecutive year that we have received an unqualified opinion in connection with our annual audit examinations.

During the course of 2015, Priests for Life, Inc. had Contribution Revenue of $10,531,340, an increase of approximately $2.3 million or 28% over the previous year. This increase was the result of a decision made in 2014 by the Board of Directors and the Executive Team to launch a multi-faceted prospecting program intended to connect with a new and very large potential group of donors as well as to re-establishregular communications with a base of contributors who had supported the organization for many years. The program utilized the expertise and services of a professional marketing firm—American Targeted Advertising (ATA)—to work with our fundraising team to develop messaging appropriate for this new potential audience of pro-life donors. As part of this aggressive outreach prospecting program, the objective was to identify potential donors and to describe the organization’s mission to them, as well as provide them with examples of our past successes and achievements. By connecting with this new group of sustaining contributors, Priests for Life will be able to minimize future marketing expenses and focus the anticipated revenue stream on expanded programs.
