Harvard Community Gifts

Community Gifts

Open Enrollment for 2019

Each year during benefits open enrollment in the fall, we invite eligible faculty and staff to make a pledged gift for next year to one of the charities shown at right by Harvard payroll deduction.

This year, open enrollment for Harvard Community gifts will run from November 7 to November 14, 2018.

During that time, you are invited to log in to the giving portal -- using your 8-digit HUID and the month and day of your birth expressed as MMDD. There, you may review current (2018) gifts and your giving history for recent years, and make a new gift for 2019.

If you are a donor who has previously elected a "rollover" of your pledge from 2018 to 2019, you will see your 2019 pledge there beginning on November 7. You may cancel or change that pledge, or make a new pledge to one of the listed charities.  Pledges to other charities will be honored if they roll over from year to year without interruption.

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 calendar falls, which sometimes results in minor changes from year to year.

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 Guidelines.

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