Payroll Deduction Programs |
In addition to direct donations, UMCC 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 UMCC is not on the list of agencies/organizations participating, you can request that they be added – see below.
What if my employer does not currently have a Payroll Deduction Program with UMCC?
To start a new payroll deduction program, someone from UMCC will meet with management and employees of an organization to explain the program and provide information about UMCC 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 UMCC a check for the total payroll deductions.
Can I designate that my donation goes to a specific agency or agencies?
Yes! An individual may designate his/her contribution for a specific agency or indicate that the contribution is for the General Fund. All contributions are acknowledged by UMCC. If you designate to a certain agency, that agency will be given the donor’s name and will also acknowledge your donation.
Currently, UMCC works with several organizations including Fisher Engineering, University of Maine Employees, Down East Enterprises Inc., MSECCA, Waldo County General Hospital, Pen Bay Healthcare, Waldo County YMCA, Camden National Bank, and more.
Add your employer to the list!
UMCC will contact your employer at your request. Then UMCC and your employer will work together to install a plan.
To Youthlinks from community member
“We are so appreciative of the way you are showing our kids the limitless ways to be of service to our community. By your example you are showing them what matters in life. You are their mentors but also their friends. It is obviously not just a job; you care about a quality program."
