The member must have their address of record in the United States and the bank from which the funds will be drawn must be a U. S. bank. Are you saying that both your address is in the U.S. as well as the bank is a U.S. bank? If so, what is the message you get when you try to make a donation?

There are some exceptions, such as for servicemen stationed overseas who still use U.S. banking accounts. But those have to be set up on an individual basis by headquarters.

However, I'd expect all residents of the US to be able to get into the donation system. It will only accept US banks, but you have to be in to before you hit that roadblock.

I'm not sure if the system looks at the members address, or if it looks at what ward they belong to. Or both.

It looks at what stake they belong to. The system may also have been tweaked by now to include wards in stakes that extend outside the U.S., but where the ward itself is totally within the U.S.
