Payroll Deductions: An Easy Way to Give

Payroll deduction is an easy and painless way for University employees to contribute on a biweekly basis to almost any area of the University. Faculty and Staff are able to designate their gift to any fund. Once an employee enrolls to make a gift via payroll deduction, funds are automatically deducted from the biweekly paycheck and deposited into the donation fund they wish to support.

To decide how much to have deducted on a biweekly basis, we encourage Faculty and Staff to first decide how much the want to donate over the course of a year and then divide that amount by 26 paychecks. For example, if an employee wishes to donate $250 a year to the Gallaudet Fund, they should deduct $9.62 from their biweekly paycheck ($250/26 = $9.62).
