If you’re located at a college, contact your college contact person(s) for the Employee Giving Back Campaign. If you’re unsure who that is at your college, or if you’re a DSO employee call Alamo Colleges Foundation office at (210) 485-0044. Richard Farias or Mya Thomas will be happy to assist you! There is a specific pledge form you should use for the campaign.
Gifts made via cash, check, or credit card are one-time gifts and are processed immediately. There may be a processing lag of several days for checks, but they will be processed as quickly as possible.
Gifts made via payroll deduction are processed starting with the employee’s first paycheck in January 2020. You may select anywhere between 1-24 pay periods for payroll deduction. Be advised that the deductions are made in order of overall pay periods, so if you select 12 pay periods, it will be the first 12 pay periods (January-June), not one deduction per month.
Deductions are after-tax, as federal law does not allow for charitable donations through payroll deduction to be done pre-tax.
To comply with IRS and state gaming regulations, Alamo Colleges Foundation will not accept funds raised through games of chance (i.e., raffles), nor can the Alamo Colleges Foundation 501 (c)(3) certificate be used to solicit for door prizes.
No, because there are state regulations of when and how employees may be solicited. As a district resource, email blasts are prohibited. Additionally, Board of Trustees Procedure D.2.4.2 Conflict of Interest also prohibits an employee from using District property, time, personnel, etc. for personal gain.
Note: Each year, Alamo Colleges Foundation submits a minute order to the Board of Trustees asking for approval to opt out of the State Employees Campaign in order to hold our own Employee Giving Campaign.
The Employee Giving Campaign is typically only for employees, but some exceptions can be made based upon the donor’s affiliation with the college district. Also, anyone can make a gift to a scholarship fund or program fund at the Alamo Colleges Foundation. For information and guidance, please contact Richard Farias, Director of Annual Giving, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 210-485-0221.
