The St. Michael’s Church Simple Legacy Planned Giving Initiative provides your church with long term stability. Legacy giving is a lot less complicated than you think: Today, more than 55% of individuals do not have a will. Legacy giving is the most inclusive strategy for giving. Many older members hold the majority of their wealth in liquid assets such as land, small businesses or collectibles. St. Michael's Church can convene legacy conversations and provide consultation on these important decisions. For more information, call the church office at 843-723-0603.

For more information on tithing, donations, or making a bequest, please see our Giving webpage.
