      Fill out all the requested personal and payment information to order a copy of your Articles of Incorporation NOTE: if your organization's current name is different than the one listed on your Articles of Incorporation (e.g., Creation Filing) you'll also need to order any Articles of Amendment or DBA/Fictious Name documentation showing the connection between your original and your current entity name

      You'll need to email your Secretary of State requesting these documents directly. To do so, send an email like this, using this form (https://sos.sc.gov/contact/business_filings_division): "To whom it may concern, My name is {{insert name}}, and I am the {{insert job title}} for {{insert organization's legal entity name}} ({{insert business entity ID}}). I am reaching out because our organization is enrolling in Apple's developer program to publish an app, and they have requested that we provide them our Articles of Incorporation and any subsequent Articles of Amendment/DBA documentation. Could you please send me electronic and/or physical copies of these documents so that we may move forward with our enrollment in Apple's developer program? Let me know if you require anything else in order to send me these documents. Thank you, {{insert name}}"
