Non-members paying tithes and offerings

Postby larrysadams » Thu Sep 10, 2015 5:54 am

We have a non-member taking the lessons and wants to pay tithing now. She does not have a membership number.
Can she pay offerings and how?

She may donate using the paper donation slips and submitting the donations to members of the bishopric. The clerk who records the donation can add her as a donor on the local, ward computer even if she is not a member of the church. She should make sure that her correct address is on the donation slip (there is not a place to write that on the current form but she can write it instead of a membership number). Then the clerk can provide a receipt for tax purposes and mail it to that address.

After she becomes a member (I'm counting on a good outcome from her time as an investigator) the clerk can link her donation records to her membership, but someone might want to remind the clerk that he must complete that step.
