ICARE Faculty/Staff Giving Campaign FAQs
Q: I've made a gift since July 1, 2012, does my gift count toward this year's campaign and my department's goal of reaching 100% participation?
A: Yes! Any gift made by faculty and staff members will be included in the campaign. You don't have to make another gift; however, if you want to revisit your payroll deduction amount or make an additional gift, you will help us make additional progress toward the overall $50,000 goal.
Q: What kind of reporting will be done relating to departmental breakdowns? Will it be participation rates, dollar amounts, or both? Will the departmental breakdowns be shared campus wide?
A: Only participation rates by department will be shown in the weekly reports that are distributed throughout the Faculty/Staff community. As we have several departments that only house 1-2 employees, we will not disclose departmental dollar amounts given. In addition, we will share the overall donation progress by participation and amount raised as a university.
Q: If someone wants to make a one-time donation to the Pfeiffer Fund or Restricted Giving, is there a form that can be used so that it counts toward the campaign goal?
A: The payroll deduction form will allow you to make a one-time gift through Item #2 to any of the four giving options discussed in the letter including a restricted fund of your choice or Pfeiffer Fund. All you'll need to do is write in the total dollar amount of your gift, paid as 1 payment, for 1 month and the date for that to occur. Then, check the appropriate box to designate your gift.
If you should prefer to give via cash/check/credit card instead of payroll deduction, that can be done online or via the pledge agreement form sent out in the weekly emails.
Q: I would prefer to give to my department or a specific program, how is that done and does it count toward the goal?
A: Yes to both! You may designate a specific program within the University to receive your gift using the â€œRestricted Givingâ€ option on either of the giving forms. All faculty and staff gifts received before September 27, 2012 will count toward your departmental and overall University goal.
