“Policies and Announcements,” Ensign, Aug. 2001, 79
The First Presidency sent the following letter, dated 25 April 2001, to General Authorities; Area Authority Seventies; stake, mission, and district presidents; bishops and branch presidents, to be read in sacrament meeting.
In the priesthood session of the April 2001 general conference of the Church, the creation of a Perpetual Education Fund was announced. This fund will provide loans to help returned missionaries and other needy members in less-developed countries obtain education needed for job skills.
Members wanting to contribute to this fund may do so through their ward or branch by writing PEF on the “Other” line on a donation slip. They may also send donations directly to Church headquarters in care of Treasury Services, 50 East North Temple Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84150. Questions relating to this program may be directed to the Perpetual Education Fund office at 801-240-7841.
We anticipate that lives will be enhanced and blessed as educational and vocational opportunities are made available.
