Church Removes Online Donation Options for Temple Patron Assistance Fund, Perpetual Education Fund
Recently, the Church removed options to donate to the Temple Patron Assistance Fund and Perpetual Education Fund from the online tithing forms.
"The generosity of Church members and others has led to sufficient levels of donated funds to the Perpetual Education Fund and the Temple Patron Assistance Fund," a message on lds.org reads. "As a result, members are encouraged to select other categories for their ongoing donations."
However, donations to these categories can still be processed through wards or branches. These funds were removed, "Because many members donate online," according to the message on lds.org.
