Online Donations—International

To make a donation, visit donations.churchofjesuschrist.org. For further support, clerks may contact the Global Service Center.

Getting Started

Donating online is an alternate method to contribute to the Church, similar to giving the donation to your bishop or branch president. Online donations will allow you to access your donation history in real time as well as print your own donation statements.

You can start using online donations to pay your tithing and other offerings by navigating to donations.churchofjesuschrist.org or by going to the My Account and Ward menu on ChurchofJesusChrist.org at the top right corner of the page. Click My Account and Ward and then the Donations link under the My Ward section. You will be prompted to use your Church Account username and password to access the system.

The Donation Process

Step 1: Make a Donation (donations.churchofjesuschrist.org)

To make a donation, click in the blank field and enter the donation amounts just as you would on a paper donation slip. For example, enter your tithing amount next to “Tithing.” With the field highlighted, enter the amount you want to donate. Repeat this step for each category in your donation. When you are finished, click Next Step.

Donating to the Ward Missionary Fund

Missionaries and their families make sacrifices to provide financial support for missionary work. They are asked to contribute a specified amount in support of missionary work. Nevertheless, contributions to ward missionary funds remain subject to the Church’s discretion and control and are not legally designated or earmarked for any particular missionary but are pooled to equalize funding for missionaries not supported by the General Missionary Fund.

To donate to the ward missionary fund, click Select a missionary.

  1. From the drop-down list, select the name of the missionary.
  2. Enter your donation amount in the blank highlighted field next to your selection.

Donating to the Missionary Fund of Other Wards or Branches
To donate to the missionary fund of another ward or branch, click Select a missionary and then click Missionary in Other Ward or Branch.

  1. Enter the ward or branch number, and click Continue. For help in getting a ward or branch number, click How do I get a ward or branch number?
  2. From the drop-down list, select the name of the missionary.
  3. In the blank highlighted field next to the missionary’s name, enter the amount you wish to donate.

Specifying Other Donations
To donate to one of the other donation categories (such as Book of Mormon, Temple Construction, Perpetual Education, or Temple Patron Assistance), click Select a category under the Other heading.

  1. Click the category to which you want to donate.
  2. Enter your donation amount in the blank highlighted field next to your selected category.

Step 2: Bank Account

The first time you make an online donation, you will need to add a bank account. Donations are made using an electronic funds transfer (EFT) from your bank account.

Add Bank Account

  1. In the Name Your Account field, enter a nickname for your bank account that will help you recognize the account.
  2. Enter your bank account information. The required information differs by country.
  3. If you want to make this account your default bank account, click the Make it my default account check box.
  4. Read the Authorization and Acknowledgment box, and then click the I AGREE check box.
  5. Click Save. You will return to the Select Account screen. Once the account you want to use is selected, click Next Step.

Step 3: Review and Submit

On this screen, you can review and edit your donation and your bank account information before submitting the donation.

Edit Slip

To edit your donation, click the Edit button next to “Tithing and Other Offerings.” Make the desired changes to your donation slip, and then click Save.

Edit Bank Account

To change the bank account for this donation, click the Edit button next to “Bank Account.” Add a new account and click Save, or select a different account if you have more than one set up, and then click Next Step.

Submit

Once you confirm that your donation and bank account information are correct, click Submit to complete your donation.

PrintReceipt

After submitting, you can print a receipt of your donation. To do so, click Print Receipt. Click Done to finish.
