Guidelines on Payroll Deductions for Employee Contributions for Charitable Drives and Campus Fundraising Campaigns
Enclosed are the Guidelines for Payroll Deductions for Employee Contributions for Charitable Drives and Campus Fundraising Campaigns, which are effective immediately, and supersede those issued by President Saxon on June 29, 1976.
The revised Guidelines reflect the May 1997 action taken by The Regents, which amended the Policy on Payroll Deductions for Charitable Contributions and Development Programs to permit the President to approve payroll deductions for more than one on-campus fundraising campaign (see attached).
While campuses will need to continue to request approval by the President in order to establish payroll deductions for on-campus fundraising campaigns, they need not submit for approval requests to establish separate payroll deductions for any existing program which is part of an approved fundraising campaign. Campuses also may continue to use one payroll deduction, if desired, for multiple programs under a campaign.
The revised Guidelines also eliminate the 12-month limit for establishing payroll deductions
involving charitable contributions. Based on this change, payroll deductions for charitable
contributions may be established for an indefinite (open-ended) period of time or renewed periodically,
at the option of the campus or Laboratory.
