"Philanthropic giving is a form of service to others. My automatic payroll deduction contributions have allowed me to give to my own community program as an executive director, but also to another awesome youth program on campus. I don’t even realize it’s being taken out. It’s easy." 

—Gia Grier McGinnis, DrPH, MS, executive director, UMB CURE Scholars Program

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.
