Church History

Donations to the Church History fund support the development and implementation of approved projects. Your support provides resources to create new and authentic experiences for members of the Church and others who visit these sacred places.

How Are the Donations Used?

The Church History Fund is a financial resource for authorized historical projects of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This central fund has been established to provide a reliable and recognized channel for focusing funds on high-priority projects approved by prophets and apostles and other Church leaders. While there will be many projects and initiatives, donors will contribute to one fund. Authorized Church leaders will draw on that fund and allocate resources based on planned priorities and emerging needs.
