How to Donate

“Where there is widespread poverty among our people, we must do all we can to help them to lift themselves, to establish their lives upon a foundation of self-reliance that can come of training. Education is the key to opportunity” (Gordon B. Hinckley, “The Perpetual Education Fund,” Ensign, May 2001, 53).

Donate Now

“Some have already given very substantial amounts. … But we will need considerably more. We invite others who wish to contribute to do so” (Gordon B. Hinckley, “The Perpetual Education Fund,” Ensign, May 2001, 53).


In Memoriam Donations

Some people honor their loved ones who have passed away by making a donation in lieu of flowers. You can make your donation online or place an “in memory” donation link in an obituary in the newspaper by using the http://give.lds.org/pef link.
