What Every Latter-day Saint Should
Know About LDS Philanthropies
"I was presiding over the Asia North Area when the cataclysmic disaster struck Japan on March 11, 2011, so I became a personal witness of the gospel of Jesus Christ in action and saw the way in which the Lord provides for those who have been adversely affected. Day after day my heart was touched as scores of members, missionaries, and friends of the Church worked together to ease the suffering of those affected.
“Now I have the opportunity to work with LDS Philanthropies. What a great blessing it is for me to witness on a daily basis how freewill gifts from individuals, couples, families, and organizations are benefiting the poor and the needy, the sick and the afflicted. Indeed, as the LDS Philanthropies motto says, these donations truly are “changing and saving lives” throughout the world by funding our extensive humanitarian efforts and by contributing to help thousands of people gain an education at our four Church schools.
"We’ve designed this website to provide information about charities affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You’ll read inspiring stories about those who donate and those who receive. As you become aware of the great good that is being done around the world through LDS Philanthropies, I hope that you, too, will be prompted to help God bless His children. And please know that 100 percent of every dollar you give will benefit those you intend to help.”
