Missionary Fund Adjustment

Postby BlayneC_17 » Mon Mar 01, 2021 10:00 pm

I was recently contacted by a missionary's father about the amount of money that was withdrawn from church headquarters for his mission every month. He asked why only $400 was being withdrawn rather than $500 (due to the announcement that the church made in 2019). I saw where there was an announcement about this change being delayed, but I would really appreciate if one of y'all had a link to this notice. I've searched and I can't seem to find it in the official communications library

The first announcement was in a First Presidency letter dated 27 June, 2019. That letter is no longer available in the OCL. In May 2020, exact date unknown, there was a notice that the increase was suspended until further notice. That notice is also missing from the OCL.

That makes sense why I could not find it then. Thank you for the help!

Interestingly, I happened to still have this email
Notice, 17 April 2020: Missionary Fund Adjustments
but when I click the link in the email, nothing is found. I was thinking maybe even if the Search functionality couldn't find it, the direct link might. No such luck.

I am also looking for the announcement as one of our missionary's parents is inquiring about the same thing.

If you are a bishopric member or a ward clerk you can contact the Global Service Department (GSD) and ask them for the document.
