Throughout the scriptures, God's children have been asked to "remember" how He has blessed them, upheld them in their trials, and delivered them from bondage. We preserve the memory of sacred events and places today in order to ensure our connection with Him now and in the future.
Through the years, many desiring to assist with Church-approved historical projects have contacted Church leaders, the Church History divisions of the Family and Church History Department, and other organizations asking how they can most appropriately assist in historical restoration, research, and preservation projects. This central fund has been established to provide a reliable and recognized channel for focusing funds on high-priority, approved projects.
Without support from the Church History Fund, some worthwhile projects may be significantly postponed or not initiated.
