UCHealth employee giving
Making a payroll deduction gift as a UCHealth employee is a very easy way to support the patients, programs, and employees of UCHealth in northern Colorado that UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation funds support. For less than a cup of coffee a day, you can grow your impact far beyond your daily work by giving $5, $10, $20, or more from each paycheck. A $10 two-week pay period gift amounts to $260 per year in impact to the fund of your choice.
At UCHealth in northern Colorado, we support and celebrate the generosity of our employees. Giving isn’t just something we do; it’s who we are. PVH, MCR and Greeley Hospital match each $1 donated by employees with $0.50 to the same fund, extending the impact and voice of employee generosity.
Your contribution adds up: 20 people giving the cost of one latte a week = $5,200 ($10 per pay period = $260 per year), equating to:
– 3 Employee Hardship Relief Program grants
– 4 employee scholarships
– 10 patients supported by oncology patient navigators
What to know about your donation:
All gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Employee gifts made via payroll deduction are shown on employee pay stubs. Each pay stub in Lawson shows individual payroll contributions during that pay period. The year-end pay stub includes a cumulative record of all gifts during that year and can be used for tax purposes.
Gifts made by cash, check, or credit card will result in a paper receipt and will not be included on employee pay stub.
PTO is processed as a PTO payout, not compensation, so it is taxed at the rate of 25% federal and 4.63% state. Payroll calculates those taxes and reduces the amount that is actually given to the foundation so that the employee is not short on their regular pay because of the additional taxes. The donated PTO shows up as a deduction on the employee paycheck and is a separate item from any other donations.
