History

Deseret Trust Company (DTC) was created in 1972 to assume the asset management and fiduciary accountability functions with respect to certain gifts. These functions had previously been performed by the Development Office at Brigham Young University (BYU). The number of gifts had grown substantially; and the beneficiaries of the gifts had expanded to include not only BYU, but also BYU’s parent organization, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Church), various Church departments and activities, and other Church-affiliated schools and charities.
