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 financial hardship can request assistance with the purchase of supplies such as clothing, shoes, luggage, or other needed items.
  2. 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. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints assists with funding that helps us provide tuition assistance to immigrants and refugees.

Your Donations at Work

In recent years, we’ve been able to help hundreds of missionaries! We invite you to watch some video interviews and read a selection of quotes from missionaries (both new and returned) who have benefited from donations.

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!
