Electronic Donations to Church Headquarters Through Bill Payment Service
Donations through bill payment services can be accepted for: Tithing, General Fast Offerings, General Missionary Fund (no Ward Missionary option is available through bill pay), Book of Mormon Fund, PEF (Perpetual Education Fund), and Other (the General Humanitarian Aid Fund). Bill payment donations cannot accommodate requests to send funds to a ward for fast offerings or missionary support. If you wish to give to your local fast offering or ward missionary fund you will need to give the donation directly to your ward.
In order for your donations to correctly post to your desired categories at church headquarters you must set up separate bill payments for each category to which you wish to donate. For example, if you would like to make a tithing donation and a donation for the General Missionary Fund, you must setup a bill-payment instruction named LDS-Tithing and a separate one named LDS-Missionary (General) on your banks bill payment system. The EXACT category names must be used and are case sensitive. Shown below are the exact names that must be used for the various donation categories:
LDS-Book of Mormon
As part of setting up your bill pay instruction, your bank will ask you to input your account number with the party to whom you are making the payment. This account number is your church membership number. You can get your membership number from your ward clerk or it can be found on your temple recommend. Please input your membership number in this format: ###-####-#### all leading zeros and dashes are necessary.
During the bill pay set up, your bank will also ask for the address and telephone number of the church. Please use the following address for all of the donations categories listed above:
Please input this address EXACTLY as it shows here:
50 East North Temple Street
Salt Lake City, UT 84150
The bill payment service cannot send your donation to the Church electronically unless the category name and address for the church are identical to those listed above. It is also critical that your membership number is entered as the bill pay account number exactly as described above.
Monthly confirmations will be mailed to allow you to verify that your donation was received and allocated correctly. Tax valid receipts will also be mailed after each year end. Please contact our office if you have any additional questions.
