The Atlantic Stewardship Bank is pleased to tithe, or share ten percent of its pre-taxable income with Christian and non-profit organizations selected by the Board of Directors. The original founders of the Bank were so deeply committed to this concept, that the Tithing Program was built into the corporate-by-laws.
Each year, the Bank Board of Directors has the honor of giving away monies to help support many worthwhile organizations.Over $7,700,000 has been given under the Bank's unique Tithing Program since its inception. Requests are received throughout the year and are reviewed by the Board in November for distribution the following year. Although rewarding, this is a difficult task which requires prayerful consideration. There are so many organizations in need, and it is not possible to support all of the requests. An ecumenical posture was adopted from the very beginning and continues today.
Over $7,700,000 has been given under the Bank's unique Tithing Program since its inception. This past year $398,000 was shared with 288 deserving organizations. The recipients of these funds fall into three basic categories.
The first category of tithe recipients are missions, including local and international mission programs. We support many inner city mission programs that preach the Gospel and provide food, shelter and career training. In addition, mission organizations are supported that serve underprivileged nations with agricultural, educational, health assistance and spiritual needs.
The second category of tithe recipients are Christian schools. These educational facilities range from Day Care and Preschool programs and extend through colleges.
The third category of tithe recipients are health care facilities. These include institutions such as Christian nursing homes, programs for those with special needs, and hospitals.
In addition, the Atlantic Stewardship Bank offers financial support to the libraries, ambulance corps, fire departments and civic organizations which are local to the Bank's branch offices.
We are pleased that the majority of tithe recipients maintain accounts at the Atlantic Stewardship Bank. Their account relationships help the Bank achieve its mission of tithing.
