After a few years of strategic discussions, the NPGA and NGPA Education Fund pursued and completed a successful merger in 2018. Due to recent Accounting Pronouncements, the Endowment received from the Education Fund in the merger was to be recorded as a ‘Contribution’ in 2018. The amount (About $365,000) caused our ‘Income’ for 2018 to appear materially higher than normal. As such any comparison between 2018 and 2019 or other subsequent years should factor the 2018 one-time Accounting event into such comparison of results.
