2022 End-of-Year Giving Guidelines

SPD Giving Guidelines
2022 End-of-Year Planning

Thank you for your faithful support of St. Philip the Deacon. Your generosity makes our mission and ministry possible. As the year concludes, please follow these helpful guidelines for your final 2022 contributions:

For a gift to be considered a 2022 contribution, there are five ways to deliver your gifts. All of these methods must be completed before midnight on Dec. 31, 2022. Offerings received after Dec. 31 will be recorded as 2023 offerings, regardless of which year’s envelope is used. You may:

  • Place your gift into the offering plates in the narthex before/after worship services.
  • Deliver to the church office (M–F 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.)
    Place in the black mail drop-box outside of Door B (upper west office door)
  • Give electronically at
  • Send via U.S. Mail—must be postmarked on or before Dec. 31. (Note: Dec. 31 is a Saturday. Please plan ahead.)

A few things to note about gifts of stock, IRA distributions and prepayment for 2023 giving:

All stock and IRA distributions/charitable gifts also follow the above guidelines

If you wish to transfer stock to the church’s Schwab account, please let us know about your gift, as donor names are not disclosed by Schwab.
When transferring assets to the SPD Schwab account from firms other than Schwab, processing times typically vary from two to six weeks. Assets must be transferred and deposited into our Schwab account by Dec. 31, 2022.

If you wish to prepay your 2023 contributions, please make a notation on the envelope, and write in the check memo, “Prepayment for 2023.” To receive credit on your 2022 year-end statement, 2023 prepayments must also be received by Dec. 31, 2022. If an electronic gift is desired to be recorded as a 2023 prepay, the gift must be initiated on or before Dec. 31, 2022. A call or email to the finance office is extremely helpful if an electronic 2023 prepayment gift has been initiated.

We are grateful to you for your part in helping us continue to Reach Out, Proclaim and Inspire. Remember: Your gifts make a difference! (Ephesians 1:15-19)
