With your nephew's home address, you can look up their ward using the Meetinghouse Locator tool. The Bishop's contact information will also be listed. You should be able to use their ward information to make online donations to your nephew's missionary fund as long as you are in the US and are using a US bank.

What are your options if you are not currently living in the US but you do have a US bank account that would be used to make a donation? In my lds.org account, I do not see any buttons for functions to create a new donation entry.

Thanks.

Since you've tacked your question onto the end of a thread on supporting missionaries, what kind of donations are you wanting to make? If it's tithing and fast offering, then email donations@ldschurch.org and explain the situation. But that's not going to help if you want to donate to a missionary in your current country.

I have 2 nieces currently serving missions in U.S. based missions that I want to send donations to each month. I temporarily live overseas, but we still have a U.S. bank account. I can email the donations address you gave me if that's the best way to help get this set up. Thanks.

What ward is going to be financially responsible? If it's not located in the US, then it won't work.

Note that it doesn't matter where the missionaries serve, it's what ward is financially responsible. So far, the on-line donations doesn't cross country borders (or at least currency). And not all countries are set up with on-line donations.

One niece's home ward is in Idaho, the other is in Utah (my home bank is in Idaho). I just want to set up a donation through their home wards but in my view of the "Donations" page, I don't have any buttons to add a new online donation transaction or bank account as I see in the instructions for making On-line donations from the lds.org "help" sections. I don't know if it's because my current "home" branch is not in the US. Can I contact someone to setup the transactions for me, or can I/should I just do bill pay from my US bank account sent to their home wards? I would love to set this up myself, but I don't have any functionality on the "Donations" page other than seeing my own online tithing and fast offering reports.

Send an email to "donations" listed above, and they can enable US donations on your donations page.

Once that is set up, you should be able to select each of the missionaries for donation. You will need to know their unit numbers. Your ward clerk can help you obtain them.
