Frequently Asked Questions: Employee Giving at UAA
Why do we ask employees to give?
And the most important reason to give...
How much should I give?
Gifts of all sizes make a difference. Your participation is most important. Did you know that just $10 per pay period adds up to $260* a year? Small gifts add up fast to do big things for UAA.
*Based on 26 pay periods.
How can I give?
UAA employees can give online, by credit card or check, through payroll deduction or over the phone. To learn more, please visit our "Ways to Give" page.
What is the easiest way to give with the greatest impact?
Payroll deduction–It’s a snap! Specify the total gift amount you would like to give and a portion will be automatically deducted from your paycheck each pay period. These gifts make a great impact over time. Download an Employee Giving form (PDF) or call us at (907) 786-4847.
Where can I direct my gift?
Your gift can be directed toward any UA Foundation fund you choose. You may designate your gift to the area that most reflects your personal and professional values and interests–to the school, college, program, endowment or scholarship of your choice. Need help finding a fund that will be meaningful to you? Call University Advancement at (907) 786-4847.
I already made my gift this year. Will my gift count toward the "Seawolf Spirit at Work" campaign?
Absolutely! If you have donated to UAA at any time during the fiscal year, your gift counts–thank you! We recognize donors on an annual Employee Honor Roll.
Please note: we account for, acknowledge and steward our donors on a fiscal year basis, July 1–June 30.
Can my gift be matched?
For 2012, Chancellor Case has announced a dollar-for-dollar match for any NEW contributions or an INCREASED gift over last year (up to $2,500) from the UA Foundation Chancellor's undesignated fund. Your gift will be matched when it is designated to any existing foundation fund, scholarship or program of your choice. The Employee Giving campaign runs from March 20, 2012, through June 30, 2012. The challenge will be applied to employee gifts made this fiscal year.
Will I get a receipt for tax purposes?
Yes. The UA Foundation processes and receipts your charitable gift to UAA. Please contact the UA Foundation Office at (907) 450-8030 or email email@example.com with questions.
