You are correct that if you wish to contribute to a missionary from another unit, you will need that unit number.

The easiest way to get that number is to speak with your ward clerk. The other way is to follow one of the suggestions in the posts in this thread. I count two ways of doing it, both using the Maps tool which is available to all.

The post you are referring to was made three and a half years ago. That was well before the current system where members need unit numbers for donating to missionaries in other wards.

Welcome to the forum- Did you find it?
As others have said in this thread there are several ways now, but you can still contact your clerk. Look yourself on LDS.org following these steps.
Step one: Browse to the “Meetinghouse locator” menu option on LDS.org under the menu “My account and ward” (top right)
(Don’t use the LDS TOOLS mobile app "Meetinghouses" menu option for this, it will not show the unit number, only the unit name- If on a mobile device, just use the browser to go to LDS.org)
This link will take you there: https://www.lds.org/maps/meetinghouses

Step two: Sign in with your LDS.org login (choose “my account and ward” option, then choose "sign-in" at top right of screen)
This is a necessary step to see the ward number!

Step three: Type in an address, or a ward name in the search box (near top left of screen- see screenshot below.) If you don’t know all the right information to type in, providing a city name or zip code might help you find the exact ward you need in that area.

When the correct ward or branch is selected by you, the unit number will be listed next to the ward name, and the stake number will be listed next to the stake name. That's it! (If you failed to sign-in with an lds account, only the name of the unit will be shown.)

This screenshot will help you....
