FAQs

IGIVE focuses on participation and employees joining together to make an impact. Any amount, even if a gift seems minimal, will make a difference. A payroll deduction pledge allows employees to make a generous contribution in manageable amounts each pay period.

  • Bi-Weekly/Monthly – minimum gift of $24 ($1 per pay period)
  • One-time gift – minimum of $10

Yes! Every contribution added together becomes a powerful force to make an impact.  We know that smaller gifts can and do add up: 74% of gifts given last year were $100 or less.  A gift is an investment that helps ensure that the education, healing and research we do here every day will continue and make an impact on our university, health system and community.

Due to social distancing guidelines, we are asking all employees to give online this year at augusta.edu/IGIVE.
