Assisted Giving

Message from Kenneth R. McCarty

I am excited and honored to be working in Religious Education. I can honestly say in my 29 years of fund-raising experience, I have never worked for a more "noble" cause than the projects we are funding in Religious Education.

The work we do, and the work you will help us with, will not only bless the lives of the students at BYU, but because of the special charge we have been given to use the resources of Religious Education to build the Kingdom, your support and generosity will be a blessing to the entire worldwide Church. I sincerely look forward to assisting you.
