As we approach the day on which we celebrate the birth of our Savior and the end of the year, our hearts are responding to God’s amazing gift to us with the desire to be generous to others. And some of us are making sure that we fulfill the tithing commitment we made. The best way to effectively reach others for Christ is through the ministry of your church, which is funded through your tithes and offerings. If you are considering giving tithes and offerings to St. Michael’s in the form of stock, please be assured that we welcome and appreciate such gifts. To alleviate any confusion about the process and to ensure that we credit properly your stock gift, we need your help.
Stock transfers are made by your broker to St. Michael’s by a transfer of the shares into our stock account held at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. You will need to give the following information to your broker:
The name of our account is St. Michael’s Church Gift Account and the account number is 435-04275-1-6. The DTC tracking number is 0418. The contact person at Morgan Stanley is Derrick Sullivan at (843) 727-7771 or
Often we receive transfers of stock into our stock account without any identification of the person who is giving the stock. You can help us by contacting Brenda Georgi, Chief of Administration, or Kara Gaillard, Bookkeeper, to let them know that you are making a stock transfer. They can be reached by calling the church office at (843) 723-0306. Helping us identify your gift as soon as it arrives will help us to properly credit your gift when it is entered into our accounting system.
You play a critical role in our ministry because you enable all that we do through your gifts of tithes and offerings. Your gifts allow us to serve the four areas that we have identified as our mission field: Hearts and Home, the Holy City, the Hurting Coast and the Hungering World.
Thank you for your faithfulness. May God bless you as you step out in faith and trust Him to tithe. May Christ fill your days with hope and love as we celebrate his birth.
