Voluntary Offerings


Excerpt from ‘Tithing and Charitable Donations’, Church Newsroom: 1

All funds given to the Church by its members are considered sacred. They are voluntary offerings that represent the faith and dedication of members and are used with careful oversight and discretion. They are audited regularly by independent, certified auditors.

Excerpt from the June 1980 Ensign, First Presidency Message, Marion G. Romney: 2

My sincere counsel to all who receive this message is: pay your tithing and be blessed.

Tithing is not a free-will offering; it is a debt, payment of which brings great blessings.
