How We Operate

Two ideas are at the core of the Church's efforts to care for those in need:

  1. 100% of every dollar donated is used to help those in need—without regard to race, religion, or ethnic origin.
  2. The Church’s humanitarian efforts help people attain self-sufficiency so they can be self-reliant long after the humanitarian project ends.

A Note from Blaine Maxfield

Managing Director, Welfare and Self-Reliance Services

As we reflect on the last few months, we want to thank you for your generous contributions and efforts. Because of your donations, we can help uplift and care for those in need globally.

As the world continues to face an unprecedented hunger crisis, the Church’s ongoing efforts include a combined $44 million to nine organizations to help thousands of mothers and young children in 30 countries combat malnutrition. The Church also donated $3 million to the first malaria vaccination effort in Africa. This historic campaign will protect an estimated 39,500 children from this deadly disease.

Your donations also helped support responses to recent disasters, including the devastating wildfires in Maui. In August 2023, the Church announced a donation of $1 million to the American Red Cross to help provide needed shelter and supplies to those affected by the fires.

We are incredibly grateful that we can follow Christ’s example to help others in need, and it is because of you that we can continue to expand this tremendous work across the world.
