Frequently Asked Questions

What is this year’s faculty and staff giving participation goal?
The goal is 60% participation. (60% was achieved last fiscal year, and we can do it again!)

Does my gift count in the giving competition between faculty/staff and Class of 2015?
Any gift made to the College is counted in this giving competition. If you have made a gift since July 1, 2014, your participation has been included.

Have you seen Class of 2015 vs. Faculty & Staff video?  The Class of 2015 has issued a friendly competition between the senior class and campus employees to see who will reach their 60% giving participation goal first!

What are ways I can designate my gift?
Designate your gift for the College’s greatest needs, your department, or another area on campus.

How much should I give?
Any amount that feels comfortable for you. Participation is truly our number one goal each year. Every gift will make a difference.

What is payroll deduction?
Payroll deduction is one of the most convenient and popular ways to give to Meredith. It allows you to make an annual pledge by having a certain amount deducted each paycheck. When completing the payroll deduction form, you specify the amount you would like automatically deducted from each paycheck, the start date, and where your support should be designated. You can have an amount deducted until further notice or until a specific total has been reached. You can complete a payroll deduction form here.

May I pledge a one-time gift and make the payment later?
Yes, you may pledge a gift at any time during the year and pay off your gift by the end of the fiscal year, which is June 30. This allows you to be recognized as a campus donor at the time of your pledge, but you make your gift payment when it is convenient for you.

Can I give my gift to more than one area?
Absolutely! When making your gift, identify the areas/fund and the amount you wish to give to each.
