Church headquarters standardizes monthly support for full-time missionaries throughout the world at $350 (or 400 Canadian dollars). This equalizes financial burden for U.S. and Canadian families who struggle to support missionaries in cities or countries with far higher cost-of-living than missionary's family. LDS church funds continue to supplement of fully pay for support of 1/3 of LDS missionaries whose families live outside of the U.S. and Canada.
