Ward Yearly Budget

The stakes then give their wards and branches a part of this allowance. Assuming that you are not in a high growth ar...

Barcode print from MLS

Mikerowaved said Which ever way you want to print it, if you hit it with a quick shot of clear Krylon (or even most lady's hair spray) and let it dry for 60 seconds, you wont have any problems with smudging or transferring to the plastic..

Member Record Missing Endowment

lajackson said- Again, if it has been 45 days, gather up the best date you have and submit it through MLS. It is true that the MLS help says after 45 days you can submit the temple ordinance through MLS. Be aware, though, that those submissions are checked by the Temple Department before they are ac...

A member in our ward wishes to donate property he owns to the church.
What is the proceedure for such a donation?
There is actually a Real Estate Services Division at Church headquarters that handles property donations. The number to call is 801-240-3760 or 801-240-3621.

Year End donation reports

gdbrown said: One of the challenges of the Year End Reports is mailing Tax statements to those who have moved from the ward. I think it's admirable for clerks to want to get the year-end donation tax statements to each and every member who contributed, but it's not expected. The policy in the MLS he...

Midiman asked: I have a member in my ward who is being audited and needs a copy of his 2004 donor statement. I went to print it from MLS, but the system only retains data back to 2005. Any idea how I can obtain that information for him? To receive this information from Church headquarters, you must ...
