Every fall the University of Iowa collaborates with our community to celebrate the spirit of giving. Through our Fall Giving Campaign, faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to give back to our communities. Every day, donations to our three campaign agencies provide much-needed services to improve our neighborhoods and our lives. And in times of crisis, we rely on these agencies to shoulder many of the burdens of organizing emergency relief and rescue.

Pledging is easy!

Donations can be made online using the self-service web form to approve pledges for payroll deduction located at hris.uiowa.edu/selfservice. Click on the "Charitable Giving" link under the Time & Pay tab to start a monthly donation. This method is completely confidential and can be used in place of the paper pledge form.
