Frequently Asked Questions About Giving
Can I choose exactly where my donation goes?
Yes, you can direct your gift for a specific purpose or to support a college, school or program that is meaningful to you. You can select from a list of priorities or indicate your preference when completing the online giving form or by calling the Office of Annual Giving at 888-253-2383.
Will my company match my donation?
Many companies offer employees - and sometimes spouses and retirees - a matching-gift benefit that doubles or triples their donations to higher education. Please visit your human resources office to learn more about matching-gift donations. Check here to see if your company matches gifts.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Gifts to the University of Dayton, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Please consult your tax attorney or financial advisor to determine if your gift is tax-deductible.
Is online giving safe?
We understand some donors may be wary of sharing their personal and financial information online. That is why the University of Dayton uses an SSL Certificate to protect our online donation page. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology means our server has a digital certificate that establishes a secure connection when an Internet user attempts to send confidential information via our donation page.
