UC Payroll Deduction

Payroll deduction is an easy and painless way for University employees to contribute on a monthly basis to almost any area of the University. Faculty and Staff are able to designate their gift to any fund listed on the givetocal site or any fund established with the UC Berkeley Foundation. Once an employee enrolls to make a gift via payroll deduction, funds are automatically deducted from the monthly paycheck and credited into the receiving account. The payroll deduction option is an alternative to payment by credit card, check, or bank transfer, and it’s a convenient way for Faculty and Staff to participate in the Chancellor’s Challenge.

The Chancellor’s Challenge, a program announced in April 2007 matches gifts made by faculty, staff, and students to any need-based scholarship or graduate fellowship fund. The Challenge matches, dollar for dollar, gifts up to a total of $250,000. Gifts are counted toward the Campaign for Berkeley, and the program will continue through June 30, 2012.

Enrollment Process:

Complete and submit an authorization form online. For security reasons you will need to login with your Calnet ID. Once the form is submitted, you will receive an email message requesting you to validate the gift details before it is submitted to Gift Operations and the Payroll Office.

Information received in payroll by the 10th of the month, expect your deduction to begin the following month. If received after the 10th of the month, deduction will be taken within 60 days.

Steps to cancel or modify deduction: Send an email to gifthelp@berkeley.edu with "request to cancel/modify deduction" in the subject line, and include your employee ID in the Message body.

Gift Operations will contact you if they encounter problems processing your request or they require any further clarification.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Gift Operations at 510.643.9789 or by e-mail at gifthelp@berkeley.edu.
