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.

FEATURED FUNDS

Each year university leadership from each college and division, determine a few funds from their areas to feature. See the recommended funds list.

OTHER AVAILABLE FUNDS

Although some funds have been selected to be featured, you may designate your gift to any university program or fund. Check with your area volunteer for more information on additional funds or see below on how to search for a fund.

HOW TO SEARCH FOR FUNDS

Once you've made it to the online form (either the payroll deduction form or credit card form) under "GIVE NOW" you will see "search for a fund" under the "please use my gift to support" section of the form.

Simply type in the partial name of the fund or key word to see a list of funds in that category.  For example, if you are looking for First Generation Scholarships, type in "First" to see a listing of scholarships with "First" in the name. Try various combinations of key words to find the fund you are looking for. The key word search is predictive, so you may need to type in additional key words to find what you are looking for. If you can't find the fund you are looking for, email Carla Cordoba or call 407.882.1220.
