Donating online is an alternate method for contributing to the Church, similar to giving your donation to your bishop or branch president. When you donate to the Church online, you can access your donation history in real time, and you can print your donation statements.
You can start using online donations to pay your tithing and other offerings by navigating to 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 account username and password to access the system.
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. These contributions 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.
Donating Funds to the Ward Missionary Fund in Other Wards or Branches
To donate to a ward missionary fund in another ward or branch, click Select a missionary, and then click Missionary in Other Ward or Branch.
