Payroll Deduction

Payroll deduction is the most convenient way to give for Washington University employees. This fast, simple, hassle-free method of giving allows you to make your pledge and have your contribution automatically deducted from your paycheck. You no longer have to worry about making payments on time or losing benefits.

Matching Gifts

Many members significantly increase their donation’s value (along with their own benefits and privileges) by enrolling in their company's matching gift program (contact your employer for more details). Member benefits are based on the total amount (the personal gift plus the company's match) received. Please note: If the total of your donation and the total amount your employer matches do not equal the amount due to fulfill your pledge, you will be required to pay the difference in order to maintain the club benefits.
