In addition to direct donations, UMC welcomes contributions made through payroll deduction programs. Employees of participating organizations can either make individual contributions or participate in a payroll deduction plan through their employer. Often, employers will offer a matching funds program or make a separate corporate contribution.
Someone said that giving through payroll deduction is like Novocain: it’s painless!
How do I sign up for a Payroll Deduction Program?
Contact the Human Resources/Personnel Department of your employer and ask them if they have a Payroll Deduction Program, and if so, how you can enroll. If UMC is not on the list of agencies/organizations participating, you can request that we be added – see below.
What if my employer does not currently have a Payroll Deduction Program with UMC?
To start a new payroll deduction program, someone from UMC will meet with management and employees of an organization to explain the program and provide information about UMC and the agencies we support.
With management’s permission, enrollment forms are distributed, the amount of deduction is indicated, and the form signed. That’s it! The payroll administrator will deduct the indicated amount and send UMC a check for the total payroll deductions.
Add your employer to the list!
UMC can contact your employer and work with them to begin a workplace giving program. To get the process started, call us at 207-236-2299.
