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 require additional support, please contact the program administrator:
