Re: Tithing Directly to Church HQ

2017 when I first set up my online donations settings there was a box to check that said " the ward clerk does not need to know " , I checked it and it worked great.
2018, the same box is checked under settings and the ward financial clerk handed me a paper in Priesthood Meeting with my annual donations
plainly in sight of many people and his eyes & eyebrows perked up in body language...It seems very awkward to get these looks from people
who know nothing of my personal financial situation....Can my personal financial donations be sent to church headquarters in the same
way via ACH credit from my bank account, or how does it work ?

I've been paying directly to headquarters since 2013. I had to change bank accounts because of a fraud issue with my old account. I'm having difficulty finding instructions to set up my new account to pay at headquarters. Can you help me?

You will probably need to send your new account information to onlinedonationsupport@ldschurch.org but I would email them first for instructions.

If you are using the regular online Donations site, you will be able to make the change yourself in Settings.

The only contact information we have for that is the email address onlinedonationsupport@ldschurch.org. I don't know if the domain has changed yet to the new domain.

I have a problem which is very concerning. Someone has set up an account in the same bank as me, who is taking money out regularly from my account using The name “Church of Jesus”. I have been to the bank and they say that is the Church that is deducting the funds because the Church has set it up that way so they can take out the funds to meet tithing correct payment.
1. Is that true and if so can you check it out for me.

As someone who has experienced fraud in the past, I find the bank's position puzzling. I'd tell the bank that those transactions are not authorized. It's possible that you'll have to close that account and open a different one. If you read the fine print on your bank statement, you may find the process to dispute the transactions.

The Church does not, at least in the United States, have a way to set up automatic recurring payments for tithing. When a person wants to pay tithing, they have to manually log into their Church Account and initiate it as a one-time payment. It's never initiated on the Church's side. This leads me to believe that either 1) Somehow someone else has set up your bank account as their own and is making tithing payments periodically (I would expect this to be hard to do accidentally, and I don't know what benefit someone would get out of doing it on purpose – not to mention the hoops they'd have to jump through to figure out your account number, etc.), or 2) Some sort of fraud is going on, where someone is using the name "Church of Jesus" in an attempt to either pass under the radar, or to cause trouble for the Church (or, who knows, maybe they're trying to imitate any number of general Christian churches in the area whose name starts with "Church of Jesus").
