The time is now for Emory. Few other organizations can have the broad, comprehensive impact of a major research university and health care system. Emory’s donors have a unique opportunity to see their gifts at work. A financial contribution is a way to demonstrate your investment in Emory and shows confidence in Emory’s achievements and aspirations.
Most everyone supports causes and charities that matter to them. Consider finding a way to strengthen those areas at Emory. For example, if you give to cancer research, consider giving to the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory, which employs some of the world’s best cancer researchers. If you support the environment, consider helping to fund Emory’s sustainability initiatives. If you like the arts, think about giving to music, dance, or theater at Emory.
It’s your choice. You can designate your gift to any school, program, scholarship, or initiative.
Giving is a personal decision. You determine the size and designation of your gift according to your own charitable interests and your financial capacity. Every gift counts, and your participation matters.
There are many ways to give to Emory. You can make your gift by:
Credit or debit card

Bequests or other planned gifts

Payroll deduction is one of the easiest, fastest, and most convenient ways to make your gift. By signing in to PeopleSoft and selecting “MyEmory” under Self Service, you specify the amount you would like automatically deducted from each paycheck and where your support should be designated.
Of course. A number of Emory employees have spouses or partners who work here or are alumni. It is your choice whether to make your gift as an individual or as a couple.
Gifts from employees provide funding for important initiatives at Emory. They also are an endorsement of the institution, announcing to alumni, friends, patients, corporations, and foundations that Emory is an institution worthy of support and that support starts at “home.”
MyEmory is the internal component of Emory’s comprehensive campaign, Campaign Emory. It demonstrates the internal community’s confidence and support in the institution. All gifts to MyEmory will count toward Campaign Emory and its goal. You may visit Campaign Emory’s Web site at www.campaign.emory.edu.
100 percent of your gift will go to the fund(s) you choose.
Each gift—no matter how big or small—is important. Whatever the size, your gift shows that you believe in the fund(s) you have chosen to support. Many funds receive a large number of “small” gifts that produce a tremendous impact.
