Community Gifts

Due to the need to curtail discretionary spending, Harvard Community Gifts has been suspended indefinitely, effective June 30, 2020.  Related payroll deductions for participating employees were discontinued at that time.  

All gifts collected by payroll deduction from April 1 to June 30 will be transmitted to each donor's designated charities in July.  Previous gifts have already been transmitted. To see gift and transaction history, current donors may access the Harvard Community Gifts giving portal until August 31, 2020 at:

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.

If you require additional support, or we may provide assistance with the transition to giving directly to your charities, please contact the program administrator:

To look up the status of your past Harvard payroll deductions, go to PeopleSoft and click on Self Service>My Pay>Voluntary Deductions. On this page, you will see your voluntary payroll deductions, including one for Charity, with these details on your Harvard Community Gifts deductions:

  • The per-pay-period deduction you have elected
  • The goal amount (total for the year) you pledged
  • The goal balance (the amount deducted so far this calendar year)

Payroll deductions for 2020 were discontinued effective June 30, which means that deductions will be taken for approximately half of your original, annual pledge.

Thank you for your past participation. We hope you will consider supporting our Harvard coworkers facing financial hardship due to COVID-19 or one of the Harvard University COVID-19 funds to support research, students and teaching.
