About the charity

At Deseret First, we’ve given back to the community we serve ever since our start in 1955. To assist those efforts, the Deseret First Charitable Foundation (DFCF) was created! DFCF uses donated funds to help missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

  1. Elders, sisters or even senior couples with a financial hardship can request assistance with the purchase of supplies such as clothing, shoes, luggage or other needed items.
  2. NEW – Recently returned missionaries may also request financial assistance for college tuition OR for the purchase of a school laptop as they start collegiate studies following a mission.

We love helping in such simple yet meaningful ways.

Do you know of a missionary who needs a little extra help? Contact the Foundation by requesting a donation below and let us know what the missionary’s needs are. DFCF will consider all requests, although we may award donations according to personal need and available funds.

Your Donations at Work

In recent years, we’ve been able to help hundreds of missionaries! Take a look at the following videos for interviews with some of the missionaries we’ve helped.

While DFCF was started by DFCU to further enable charitable giving, the two entities are separate and distinct legal entities and neither is responsible for the products, services, or acts of the other.

Proudly support the missionary efforts!
