“Donating for the good of humanity is a major mood-booster. The knowledge that you are helping others is hugely inspiring and, in turn, can make you feel happier and more fulfilled.

"Research has identified a link between giving to help others and increased activity in the area of the brain that registers pleasure — proving that as the saying goes, it really is far better to give than to receive. I have found that with UMB’s payroll deduction, I can easily give through an institution that I believe in to programs that mean something to me and our world. I truly am Proud to Work Here and Proud to Give Here.”

— Lois Warner, senior program specialist, Office of Philanthropy

UMB employees have the option of donating directly to the school, center, fund, or program of their choice at UMB through payroll deduction. This form of giving is:

  • Convenient: Set it and forget it.
  • Budget-friendly: You choose the amount that works best for you and your lifestyle.
  • Reliable: Assures the program or cause of your choice a consistent source of funding to use throughout the year.
