Reimbursement Procedure for Church-Related Expenses
With prior approval from a committee chair, staff person, or other authorized individual, congregants may advance their own funds for church-related expenses and then submit an Expense Reimbursement Form. To be reimbursed by the church for any level of expense:
- A receipt (e.g., original receipt, bill, canceled check) must be included with the Expense Reimbursement Form
- The form must include an explanation for the expense that clearly ties it to the cost of “doing business” for the church
- The form should be submitted within 60 days of incurring the expense
The Expense Reimbursement Form is available in the First Parish Office. Completed forms should be submitted to the Treasurer.
Reimbursement will be paid by check and mailed to the requester, generally within 30 days of submitting the request.
