How We Operate

Two ideas are at the core of the Latter-day Saint Charities response:

  1. 100% of every dollar donated is used to help those in need—without regard to race, religion, or ethnic origin.
  2. Latter-day Saint Charities helps people attain self-sufficiency so they can be self-reliant long after Latter-day Saint Charities departs.
