% of budget is average?. . .

As I give more thought to your question, you would get a better answer for your question by "googling" the question, since the answer above is not an average but only the amount for one church.

Maintenance and repairs. . .
by: Lewis in NC

Repairing buildings is rather clear and specific enough, but maintenance of building could be a broad reference that might include fire insurance, heating/cooling, lights, inspections of fire systems/equipment, phones, alarms, etc. Assuming a more narrow perspective that excludes the larger budget items mentioned to maintain a building, our building repair budget line item is approx. 1.4% of our $276,000 operating total. ($4000/$276000 = 1.5%)
