The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Officially Approve of Online Payment of Tithing
We first posted about the beta testing thanks to a piece done by Mormon LifeHacker back in March.
WellThe Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints officially announce yesterday that they have officially approved the electronic method to submit tithes and other charitable donations.
In their announcement they stated
The Church Online Donations website will be rolled out to congregations in the US throughout 2015, and the Church will notify local leaders when it is available in their area.
The Church’s Finance and Records Department says the initial site not only demonstrated a simplified donation process for members, but also showed that this new approach reduced the load on local leaders and clerks charged with processing donations.
And for those with a friend or family member serving a mission, the website allows anyone with an LDS Account — Church member or not — to donate to help financially support that missionary.
