Help the Advocate with a tax-deductible donation

As you plan your year-end tax-deductible donations, we prayerfully ask you to consider including the Advocate, a 501(c)3 nonprofit ministry, in your giving.

This year, 2019, the Advocate celebrates 182 years of existence—almost two centuries of telling God’s stories at work through United Methodist churches in this state. We have the special distinction of being the oldest newspaper in Methodism, and we are pleased to be able to carry on our Christian legacy with excellence, hard work and a passion for doing the Lord’s will.

Can you please help the Advocate’s newspaper ministry continue with a tax-deductible contribution of $50, $100, $250 or more today?

After 182 years, our newspaper is still very much thriving. Since 2010, we have won 113 journalism excellence awards from the South Carolina Press Association, United Methodist Association of Communicators and Religion Communicators Council, including “best newspaper” in our division multiple times. Every article, every photograph, every advertisement—every single thing that goes in the Advocate is designed to inform, engage, uplift and transform readers like you, all for the glory of God.

Your generous donation will help ensure we are able continue this strong, high-quality, Christian news coverage.
