Harvard Community Gifts

Community Gifts


Hundreds of faculty and staff give generously each year to people in need through Harvard Community Gifts, the University's workplace charitable giving program. The 2019 Community Gifts annual campaign has closed, with over $218,000 raised. Thank you for your generosity and community spirit!

Donors are welcome to log in to the giving portal -- using their 8-digit HUIDs and month and day of birth expressed as MMDD -- to review their pledges, or to look at their giving history. Gifts for 2019 will be funded in equal installments by payroll deduction beginning in January. Questions may be directed to: harvardcommunitygifts@easymatch.com.

Program Details

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 calendar falls. They are added together with gifts from other Harvard faculty and staff, and paid to the charities at the end of each quarter.

If you are a 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.)
  • Consult the Program Guidelines.

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