Employees Giving Back

About the Campaign:

Northwest Vista College employees support the annual Employee Giving Campaign. In 2019, NVC had a 59% participation from employees and raised $50,373. Our goal for 2020 is to be a majority giving organization where a majority of NVC employees contribute to the Employee Giving Campaign. This year’s theme is #NVCTogether. Employee donors contributed toward scholarships and programs for NVC (and other colleges of the Alamo Colleges District), the United Way and theFund for the Arts.

2020 Urgency:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students need help now more than ever. NVC students continue to work on the front lines. They homeschool their children while they study to earn a degree, and battle socioeconomic disparity and equity issues. We can help alleviate some of their burdens by donating to the Employee Giving Campaign.

Frequently Asked Questions:

I have a credit card donation – what should I do with it? Is there a specific form?

At NVC, the college contact person for the Employee Giving Campaign is Alice Martinez who can be reached by email at amartinez2@alamo.edu. There is also a specific pledge form you can use for the campaign (see the blue "Donate Now" button on this page). We are only accepting credit card donations at this time (no checks or cash please).

When will my payroll deduction pledge be processed? Are payroll deductions pre-tax or after-tax?

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.

May I hold a raffle?

To comply with IRS and state gaming regulations, Alamo Colleges Foundation does not accept funds raised through games of chance (i.e., raffles).

May I solicit non-employees for a gift through the 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 through the Alamo Colleges Foundation. For information and guidance, please contact Alice Martinez who can be reached by email at amartinez2@alamo.edu.
