  • Campus Community Campaign - Payroll Deductions


    Throughout the year, faculty and staff dedicate their talents, knowledge, energy, and heart to Governors State University. We understand that, appreciate that, and celebrate that.

    We hope that you will choose to enhance your ongoing efforts by contributing to the annual Campus Community Campaign...because every day you see firsthand how GSU is changing lives.

    Payroll deduction is an easy way for University employees to make gifts directly and automatically from a paycheck. As with online giving, payroll deduction donations allow us to minimize administrative expenses.

    When you make a payroll deduction gift, you may instruct the University to withhold a minimum contribution of $5 per month for a period of time (no less than 3 installments) or until you instruct us to discontinue the withholding.

    To make your gifts via payroll deduction, simply download, complete and return the Campus Community Campaign Payroll Deduction Form to the Governors State University Foundation.

    Either fax the form to 708-534.8959 or mail to:
                          Governors State University Foundation
                          1 University Parkway
                          University Park, IL 60484

  • Matching Gifts



    Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made to the University by their employees, retirees, and/or spouses.

    From student scholarships and technology upgrades to faculty support and innovative research, your generosity makes a powerful impact on the University—and on the world.

    Speak with your HR representative to see if your company has a matching gift policy.
