Using today’s “Net,” we provide the tools, training, and support for Latter-day Saints to share their beliefs on the Internet. We don’t believe in hiding our candle under a bushel, and the Internet provides a way for us to collectively hold our candles up, providing light to all.
Who We Are
More Good Foundation is a privately funded 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes and helps members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (often called Mormons) to share their faith online. It was founded in 2005 as a solution to the overwhelming need for accurate information about the LDS faith on the Internet. Its main office is based in the United States but it has small dynamic teams in all different parts of the world.
How We Operate
The More Good Foundation is funded by generous donations from individual church members. It may also receive funds from trusts, corporations and foundations, including the Foundation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a foundation that is funded by the revenues of wholly owned, for-profit companies. The More Good Foundation supports The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in every way, but it is not owned or operated by the Church.
What We Do
Our mission is as follows:
- Facilitate personal expressions of faith
- Reach out to those seeking truth using their own vocabulary
- Publish and promote high-quality, church-related content
- Provide a non-authoritative voice
- Refer interested people to the Church
- Illuminate the positive influence of the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons)
We join with others in following the admonition of Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles: “I exhort you to sweep the earth with messages filled with righteousness and truth—messages that are authentic, edifying, and praiseworthy—and literally to sweep the earth as with a flood.” Here are some of the ways we strive to do that:
We train church members throughout the world on the effective use of online digital media in sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, as well as their beliefs and testimonies. Visit LDS Share Expo for free online resources.
We also produce various content (e.g. videos, articles and graphics) that provide correct and uplifting information about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for both members of the Church and people that are not of our faith. Here is an example of the kind of videos we put out.
We operate more than 400 websites that support the mission of the foundation, and administer support for a hundred more. See a selection of our websites.
What You Can Do
We’ve listed multiple ways you can share the gospel online. Also if you are interested in joining our efforts, we always welcome help with translations, content creation, or promoting correct and uplifting LDS content on your own website or blog. No previous experience running a website is needed – we offer the training and support that will help you get up and running. If you have any questions or ideas that you want to share, don’t hesitate to contact us. Please note that all of our ventures are for not-for-profit and we do not allow advertising or commercial ventures on our sites.
