Donation to another ward

Postby reneeclark » Sat Aug 12, 2017 7:56 am

I was asked about this, so decided that others might want to know how to donate money to a missionary in another ward. You use the online Donations link in LDS.org and when this opens, click on the drop down box under Ward Missionary Fund. This will bring up a list of all missionaries currently serving from the ward, but it also has a link to Missionary in Other Ward or Branch. When you click on this, it will ask for the number for the ward or branch. Members can find this number by using the Meetinghouse Locator link. The number will show next to the ward name. When you use this number, the donation will go to the ward or branch which has the missionaries records.
I'm sure most of you already know this, but it was a nice discovery for me....

Thank you for your post.

The instructions to make donations to another ward or branch's missionary are found in the online donation Help FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) "Learn More >>" page. Just heed the note that states: "Currently you can only contribute the missionary funds of wards and branches in the country where you make the donation." That means a U.S. member can only contribute to missionaries serving from other U.S. wards or branches and not to a missionary serving from another country ward or branch.

Finding the unit number is a challenge for many members. As you pointed out, using the Meetinghouse Locator is useful. Asking your ward clerk to get it for you is another method.

I'd like to make an online deposit to another ward's fast offering for an individual member living in that ward needing assistance(or to reimburse that ward for any fast offering assistance they are making). Is there a way that can be done?

No. That's not possible.

Just donate in your ward to assist in the church-wide fast offering, and this member will be taken care of from the same account. There are no "ward-level" accounts - just ward-level tracking. That's why there is no option to donate fast-offering to another ward.
