Payroll Deduction

The most common way for employees to support The Talents Entrusted to Our Care: The Campaign for Muhlenberg College is through payroll deduction gifts to The Muhlenberg Fund.  You can give in any increment and it is easy.  Simply fill out the Payroll Deduction Form (download the form at right) and submit it to Kim Anderson in the Office of Development and Alumni Relations.

Here are just a few examples of how payroll deduction can really add up:

Salaried Employees

An annual salary of $37,440 yields an hourly rate of $18.  A gift of $18 per month through payroll deduction adds up to $216 per year.

An annual salary of $52,000 yields an hourly rate of $25.  A gift of $25 per month through payroll deduction adds up to $300 per year.

Hourly Paid Employees

  • $2.00 per biweekly pay period adds up to a gift of $52.00.
  • $10.00 per biweekly pay period adds up to a gift of $260.00.
  • $20.00 per biweekly pay period adds up to a gift of $520.00.
  • $40.00 per biweekly pay period adds up to a gift of $1040.00.

 

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer a "matching gift" benefit; check with your spouse's employer to see if they participate.  It's an opportunity to increase the impact of your gift by doubling or event tripling your contribution.  Simply complete your spouse's matching gift form and return it along with your gift.
