Deseret First Charitable Foundation

Deseret First Credit Union has been serving members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints since 1955 and has often found opportunities to give back. To formalize and further expand these service efforts, Deseret First established the Deseret First Charitable Foundation (DFCF) where donated funds are used to help outfit missionaries of any age from elder, sister, to a senior couple. The primary purpose of DFCF is to provide tangible items such as clothing, shoes, and luggage to missionaries. Various Deseret First employees volunteer their time to make this a reality. It is very rewarding to see the excitement of elders and sister as they prepare to serve! It’s even better knowing that we’ve been able to help in a small way to outfit them as they shop for their necessities.

We encourage you to join our efforts in helping outfit missionaries; look below for options on how to donate to the Deseret First Charitable Foundation!
