"Per capita apportionment" is how we mutually share the costs of coming together to discern the Spirit's leading for the future. The General Assembly, synods and (most, but not all) presbyteries create a per capita apportionment that they ask congregations to pay annually. Have you previously heard of per capita apportionment?

64) In the past 20 years, the amount of financial gifts for PC(USA) mission received as "undesignated" (the session or individual donor leaves the decision on how to spend the money to the PC(USA)) has declined and the amount received as "designated" (the session/donor indicates how the money is to be spent) has increased, so that now only about 20% of receipts are received as "undesignated." This shift has enhanced the ability of individuals and sessions to support specific programs, but it has lessened the ability of the PC(USA) to respond to requests for assistance from international partners and national ministries. Given this situation, please indicate whether you agree or disagree with each of the following statements: I am uncomfortable having someone else decide where my pledge goes (NODECIDE)
