What you report is correct for some kinds of donations, but not for others. The wiki has the details. Specifically, if you make Electronic Donations via BillPay, there is no way to direct Fast Offering or Ward Missionary donations to the local unit. However, if you make Donations in Kind or other Donations to Church Headquarters, you can specify that Fast Offering and Ward Missionary donations are to be sent to your local unit. The situation you report must have been one of these latter types (In Kind, Wire, Check) and not BillPay.atticusewig wrote:In my ward, we had someone who donated directly to CHQ, and their Fast Offering Donation appeared on the Church Unit Financial Statement. It requires an extra step when reconciling the bank statement ( I forgot the exact procedure, the donor now donates directly to the ward), but the Fast Offerings are credited to the ward. I haven't looked at such a donation for a while, but I believe the donor is not listed by name.
