c. Click magnifying glass next to Type of Deduction and select deduction from the list.

Select > UM Employee Giving Campaign

Select Write in the flat amount to be deducted per pay period (DO NOT USE THE PERCENTAGE TOOL FOR THIS DEDUCTION).

If you would like to make a gift of a certain amount over time:

Select > Take deduction until I reach this Goal Amount: Goal Amount should be your total gift. Payroll deductions will stop when you reach this goal. We suggest that you do not include a stop date unless you are certain that the payroll schedule allows for the final deduction to be made prior to the stop date.

If your intention is to make an ongoing gift deduction, do not use the goal amount, simply request the amount you would like to give each pay period.

Select > Enter Deduction Start Date and enter date

Select > Enter Deduction Stop Date and enter date, see above for details on how the stop date will function.

(For future edits to these selections, follow the same instructions.)

d. Click Submit to finalize your payroll deduction and complete the final step.

e. Tell the University of Maine Foundation what you would like the gift to support by submitting this form.
