What does my donation support?
Your donation goes to fund the new emergency department project. Estimated completion date is fall 2018.
If I make a donation via payroll deduct, is the donation pretax?
No, it is after tax. The donation amount will be reflected in your pay stub.
What is the duration of payroll deduct donation?
You can make your donation in any amount of pay periods—one period, annually or ongoing. You can also cancel a payroll deduction at any time.
If I donate a vacation day, how are taxes handled?
Taxes will be deducted from the donation amount. For example, if the value of a vacation day is $200, taxes will be subtracted from the $200, and the net amount after taxes will be your donation amount. So, if your vacation day is worth $200 and taxes are $50, your final donation amount is $150
