The Accounting Group can assist your staff with questions regarding the contributions your church makes to the SC Baptist Convention. This includes questions you may have concerning the giving statements you receive from us and the amounts reported in the Year to Date Missions Contributions Report. A report of church contributions is mailed to each church treasurer after the close of each calendar quarter and a report is mailed to the pastor after the close of the calendar year.
The Accounting Group can also provide your church with a 501(c)(3) letter. This letter can be used to prove your non-profit tax exempt status with the IRS. Your eligibility is based on your church’s giving to the work of the SC Baptist Convention, through the Cooperative Program, during the previous calendar year. Please note that churches are not exempt from paying Sales and Use Tax in South Carolina.
Has your church recently changed its name or merged with another church? In order for us to change the name in our database, you need to change the church’s legal name with the IRS.
The ministries of the SC Baptist Convention take place as a direct result of your giving to the Cooperative Program and other designated offerings. The Accounting Group ensures your contributions are distributed as you direct.
