Hayen reminds us last November’s numbers were extremely high.
The actual numbers for November though show $825,784 collected, which is down $209,474 from last year’s November number of $1,035,258. The numbers are also down $186,245 from the adjusted projected budget.
Much of last year’s large collection was based on intercollegiate athletics’ additional $100,000 .The other change from last year was Wal-Mart paid half its December payment early.
Hayen says there are still reasons to be optimistic that the year-end numbers should be good in terms of collection.
A reminder November numbers actually reflect two months prior or September.
