Anyone may make donations on this site. They need not be a member of the church. I've had people want to donate to my son's mission or maybe our children heard a news report about a disaster and want to help. Perhaps a neighbor wants to donate something to a loved one's favorite charity. This is the place to do it, once or ongoing.
You'll also find news of what the Church is doing about natural disasters and need around the world. If you're concerned about recent flooding in the Phillipines or tsunami damage in Samoa, or just want a way to help those in need, donate to the emergency response fund.
If you'd like to honor a loved one, in lieu of flowers, you may make a donation in their name.
Besides our tithes and fast offerings, this website shows you the many ways to give.
