What is the Give to Gators Campaign?
The Give to Gators Campaign gives employees is an opportunity support University scholarships that benefit UHD students. Funds raised UHD student scholarships and programs. Gifts the Give to Gators Campaign help the University to provide addition support to students and relief the financial burden that many of them carry due to lack of funding for tuition and fees.
Is my gift tax-deductible?
Yes, UHD is qualified as a tax-exempt organization under section 115(1) of the IRS Code, so all gifts to the University are tax deductible. To find out more about tax deductibility, visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov.
Why does the University need annual giving support?
State funding and student tuition cover only a percentage of the university's operating budget. Gifts from faculty, staff, students and friends support our programs, provide scholarships and improve our campus.
I can only make a small contribution. Does that really help?
Absolutely! It all adds up! For example, if 50 people each gave $25, this could provide $1,250 toward a student's annual cost of books and supplies. If 50 employees each pledged $15 per pay period, it would provide $9,000 and cover nearly all of the cost of tuition and books for two undergraduate students for an entire year. Every dollar counts. UHD employees who give also serve as an example for alumni to become loyal donors as well.
How does the University use my contributions?
The areas you designate online or on your pledge card will receive 100% of your gift. All restricted annual gifts fund university scholarships and existing endowments at the college of your choice. If you give an unrestricted gift, we will direct the funds to the greatest needs of the university.
How can I contribute?
There are many options for making gifts to the University, but we encourage you to make your gift online through the Payroll Deduction Form. You can also make a gift by check payable to UHD, or use your Visa, MasterCard, or Discover card, be sure to fill out the 2018 Campaign Pledge Card.
