I do not have a bank account but do have a prepaid card with some limited online services.
This card allows me to send money through their online Bill Pay portal. Cannot use routing and alike.

Can you please help me how to send my donations via bill pay?
At the very least, they require a name and address.
Should I use my ward's address? or some other [central] address?

They will probably try to mail a check to the address you provide, so do not use the meetinghouse address. I think I would make the ward the payee and send the payment in care of either my own address or the address of the bishop.

You might also wish to contact donations@ldschurch.org and see if they might be able to work something for you.

You can only donate as the person logged in.

Your wife can log in and use the same bank account that you are using. She just needs to do it from her LDS Account at the Donations link.

If you are banking with a U.S. savings or checking account, send an email to donations@ldschurch.org and ask for directions. The Church can also set it up so that you would be able to donate at the LDS.org Donations link.

If you are banking with a foreign account, speak with your local ward clerk and ask for instructions.

We have asked our ward clerk here in Czech Republic and they don't know how to set up payments. Is it possible to do online bill pay if you have a foreign account?

To use Donations at LDS.org you need a U.S. account. If you have a foreign account, you are at the mercy of the system, if there is one, that the Church may have set up for that country. Not every country has online donations.

Not on the US system.

You can try going to donations.lds.org and see if it works for you.
