Many businesses have giving programs where
the employer will match their employees’ charitable giving in whole or in part.
In some cases, gifts from spouses, directors, and retired employees are also
matched. Please contact your employer’s human resources department to learn if
your company will match your gift.

Can I designate my gift to more than one area?
Of course. Clearly note on the gift form how much you want to give to each area, and we’ll take it from there.
How much should I give?
Participation is the key to our success. What is important is that you choose to give, not necessarily the amount. When everyone gives a little bit, we all gain a lot, and we know not everyone can give a lot, but everyone can give something. No matter how much you contribute, you will get a recyclable grocery bag, a coupon for a yogurt parfait, and a coupon for the Northern Arizona University bookstore: it’s our way of saying "thanks."
Is my gift tax deductible?
Yes, your gift is fully tax deductible as provided by law. Once we receive your gift, you will receive a receipt verifying that your gift has been deposited into the account you have specified.
Can I make a gift jointly with my spouse?
Yes. Indicate on the gift form that your gift is made jointly.
Can I make an anonymous gift?
Yes. Simply note your preference on the online or print gift form.
