What if I don't see my area of interest in the participating groups?
Select the Department or Program of your choice (i.e. College of Arts and Sciences), then select "Other" in the Fund Designation drop down menu, and type in the program and/or fund name you wish to support (i.e. Biology Department). If you are unsure of the Department or Program, then go to University-wide initiatives, select "Other" in the Fund Designation drop down menu, and type in the program and/or fund name you wish to support. We will ensure your gift is designated appropriately.
Who should I contact with questions about my contribution?
For general questions about your gift, call 404-727-6200 or email email@example.com.
How do I used digital wallet payment options?
The Emory Day of Giving platform accepts the following payment options: credit card and digital wallet options of PayPal, Venmo, and ApplePay. Digital wallet options will only appear if they are set up on your personal device. ApplePay is only available when using Safari as your mobile browser (ApplePay is not available on Chrome or Facebook browsers). Venmo is only available on mobile devices. When making your first Venmo gift, a pop-up will ask you to AGREE to Venmo’s service terms; this happens automatically on iPhone but on android devices, you will need to go to your Venmo app.
Are gifts tax-deductible?
All gifts are tax deductible to the extent provided by law. Once you complete your gift transaction, you will receive an email confirmation. This will serve as your official gift acknowledgement and tax receipt from Emory University.
Can I make a gift to multiple departments/programs in one single transaction?
Yes! To do so, click the "+ Add another gift to your donation" link in the Donate section on the giving page.
When will I be charged for my gift?
Your credit card is charged immediately upon finalizing your gift on the site. When making a gift with your credit card, be sure to use your billing address and NOT your mailing address. Gifts made via Vemno, Paypal, and ApplePay will also be charged immediately against your account upon finalizing your gift on the site.
How can I make my donation go even further?
Thousands of companies match gifts to higher education, which can double or triple your gift. To find out if your employer (or your spouse's employer) has a matching gift program, visit https://together.emory.edu/matching-gifts. If so, please contact your Human Resources representative for a matching gift form. You may need to provide Emory's Employer Identification Number (EIN) on the form, which is 58-0566256. Please note matching gifts often take several months to process, thus they do not count in the Emory Day of Giving 36 hour campaign.
Is it safe to make an online gift?
Yes. When you make a gift at dayofgiving.emory.edu, gifts are processed through a third-party secure payment processing vendor. The information you provide when you make a gift will be used by Emory University for the purpose of correctly allocating, crediting, and acknowledging your gift. The charge on your credit card statement will appear from EMORY MOMENTUM. When making a gift with your credit card, be sure to use your billing address and NOT your mailing address.
