Secure Online Giving

Payroll Deduction

Payroll deduction is a convenient way to give, that automatically deducts a pre-determined amount from your paycheck. It's quick and easy! Just download and complete the Payroll Deduction Authorization Form below and submit the finished form to your payroll department for processing.

Electronic Funds Transfer

The power is in your hands! Electronic Funds Transfer is another quick and easy way to give, which automatically deducts a pre-determined amount from your bank account. Please fill out the online donation form above, select Other from the dropdown menu, and note: EFT to establish an Electronic Funds Transfer.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts are a corporation's way of multiplying the benefits of their employees' charitable gifts. If you or your spouse work for, or are retired from a company that offers a matching gift program, your gift to Aquinas could be doubled or even tripled.  In most cases, all you need to do is complete a form available through your employer. Please view our list of Companies with Matching Gift Policies below. If you don't see yours, check with your company's human resources department. 


Note: If you work for a matching gift company, your gift will not automatically be matched. You need to fill out the matching gift form available at your human resources office or do an online search for the form and process specific to your employer.

If you have any questions regarding ways to give, please call the Office of Alumni Relations & Development at (585) 254-2020 x1064.
