How can I contribute to the One Gift program?

It's very easy. Simply fill out a pledge form with the amount you want to contribute and it is deducted directly from your paycheck. You can choose how often your deductions are taken (see pledge form for options). We ask that you pledge a minimum of $1.00 per paycheck.

Can I make my donation by cash or check?

Sorry, we are not able to accept donations by cash or check.

Who decides where my contribution goes?

You do. Through One Gift, you can designate all or part of your donation to the participating charitable organization(s) of your choice.

Gifts not specifically designated to a charitable organization will be distributed to participating organizations based on the same percentage ratio as the designated dollars are distributed.

On occasion, charitable organizations either cease operations or are disqualified from participation. When this occurs, any monies collected for that organization will be distributed to all participating organizations based on the same percentage ratio as the designated dollars are distributed.

How much should I give?

One Gift is a completely voluntary program.  You may pledge from $1.00 per pay check to as much as your heart and wallet will allow.

How much of my donation to One Gift actually gets to the people who need help?

All money raised goes directly to participating organizations. All One Gift Campaign workers are state employees who volunteer their time and expertise to assist with the activity. The State places a high priority on seeing that production costs are held to a minimum.

Is my One Gift donation tax deductible?

Yes. If you itemize your deductions, the full amount is tax deductible. The total amount you contributed for the entire calendar year will be found on your last pay stub of the year. (This is your receipt for tax purposes.)

Can I make a one-time donation to One Gift?

Yes. If you would like to make a one-time lump sum donation, you can do so by selecting to have your total donation deducted from the first paycheck of January.
