Make changes to payroll deductions (or set up a new deduction) to the UWL Foundation by June 30

Each month, UWL employees give back to students and campus programs through automatic payroll deductions. Employees can set up a donation to be deducted from their paycheck and designated to any area of campus. Private support is integral to UWL’s mission of preparing students for the world. The UWL Foundation is the largest private funding resource for UWL, and our donors’ gifts directly benefit UWL.  Explore the UWL Foundation giving page to learn about the many different ways in which your gift can support UWL and our students.

As the UW System converts to a bi-monthly payroll system on July 1, now is a great time to update payroll deductions or set up a new deduction to support the area of campus you are passionate about.

Ways to give:

  1. Find the fillable payroll deduction PDF here. A signature is required to activate payroll deductions.
  2. Set up a monthly recurring gift with a credit or debit card via the Foundation website.
  3. Make a one-time gift via the Foundation website.

Contact Taylor Wilmoth with any questions or concerns.
