Harvard Community Gifts

Community Gifts

Thank you to the hundreds of faculty and staff who pledged their support to people in need -- through Harvard Community Gifts -- during the recent annual campaign. In all, $371,000 was raised for over 200 deserving charities.  Related Harvard payroll deductions will begin early 2018.

Donors are invited to log in to the giving portal -- using their 8-digit HUIDs and their month and day of birth expressed as MMDD. There, they may review their pledges for next year as well as their current (2017) and past pledges and gifts.

Questions may be directed to: harvardcommunitygifts@easymatch.com.

Program Information

The charities you support are responsible for acknowledging your gifts, and for providing tax receipts. Harvard transmits your gift(s) and contact information to the charities for this purpose, consistent with the privacy option you selected when you made your gift online.

Gifts are deducted from each paycheck, generally 12, 26, or 52 times each year depending on how often you are paid and how the payroll processing schedule falls - added together with gifts made by other Harvard faculty and staff, and paid to the charities at the end of each quarter. 

If you are a current donor and want more details about your gifts or their disbursement to the charities, please visit the Harvard Community Gifts portal, where you can:

  • Check your giving history and status of payments to your charities under "My History" (remember to log in with your Harvard University ID as your user name and your birth date expressed as MMDD as your password, not your Harvard Key.)
  • Learn more about the program under Guidelines and FAQs

If you require additional support, please contact the program administrator:
