United Way Campaign

How to Give

The university is pleased to continue the tradition of offering employees the option to give to charitable organizations of their choice through the annual Ball State Employee United Way Campaign.

On October 1, every Ball State employee will receive a packet of information containing an informative letter, the 2013 United Way Brochure, a Payroll Deduction Authorization Card, a BSU United Way Pledge Card, and a return envelope.

When you receive your packet, please take a moment to examine the information. Should you choose to participate and pledge:

1.      Complete the blue pledge card.  For a one-time gift, include your contribution (cash or check made out to United Way of Delaware County) with your pledge card. One-time contributions are necessary for anyone interested in claiming the gift on their 2013 taxes.

2.      Employees wishing to make monthly contributions through payroll deduction must complete the Payroll Deduction Card in addition to completing the pledge card.  Monthly payroll deductions for the 2012 campaign will start in January 2014.

3.      Return your pledge in the envelope included in your packet to your team captain. Team captains are encouraged to return all pledges to University Human Resource Services on or before the end of the campaign on November 30, 2013.

If, for any reason, you do not receive a packet or misplace your information, you may print the Payroll Deduction Card, fill it out, and give it to your team captain along with the blue pledge card.   

To pledge online, simply go to BSU United Way Pledge Card, complete the form, and send it directly to UHRS. Please note that if you pledge online and wish to make a one-time contribution, you must place your contribution in the envelope included in your packet and give it to your team captain. Please follow the instructions in item 2 above for monthly payroll deductions.

If you choose not to participate, you need not return the blank cards.

Please refer any questions you may have about either the payroll deduction card or the pledge card to Susan Naylor.
