Believe: The UCF Faculty & Staff Campaign

Ways to Give and Areas to Support

You can give as part of the Believe campaign in a variety of ways, including by cash or check, credit card and convenient payroll deduction. You can also specify exactly the area you wish your gift to benefit. What are you passionate about at UCF?

 

Cash or Check

Complete a pledge form (also available en Español) and return it to the representative in your area with your gift.

Credit or Debit Card

Use our online donation form or call 407.882.0540 to make your secure gift by phone.

Payroll Deduction

Set up your payroll deduction or complete a pledge form (also available en Español) with your deduction information and return to the representative in your area.

During the course of one year: 

$2 per pay period adds up to a $52 donation
$5 per pay period adds up to a $130 donation
$10 per pay period adds up to a $260 donation
$20 per pay period adds up to a $520 donation
$40 per pay period adds up to a $1,040 donation (President’s Circle recognition)

Matching Gifts 

Matching gift programs can double your gift to UCF. To verify if your spouse’s employer participates in one of these programs, use our convenient search engine or check with his or her human resources office.

Complete the paper or online pledge form (each employer has different requirements), and return it to us. You may include it along with your contribution and pledge form, or you may submit it within a month of your donation.

Recommended Funds

We encourage you to support whatever areas are most important to you. To simplify the process, though, we've asked UCF leaders to identify the areas of greatest need within their respective divisions to create a list of suggested funds. To give to one of the funds on that list simply click on its name below.
