HOW TO GIVE TO UNITED WAY OF PAYNE COUNTY
This year, OSU employees have many options to give or pledge to United Way, including: payroll deduction, bill me, bank draft, credit card, check or cash.
Employees can enter payroll deductions, bill me or bank draft on Banner self-service at my.okstate.edu or at the link below. Employees do not turn in pledge cards for payroll deductions, bill me or bank draft. Amounts are deducted from the first paycheck of the month for bi-weekly employees and on the month-end payroll for monthly employees
Employees wishing to make a one-time credit or debit card payment can visit the link here.
Any cash or checks, either from employee donations or fundraising events, must be collected by the department's United Way coordinator and deposited with the instructions found at the following link. This page also has guidance on how to get help from United Way to take credit card donations or utilize online forms for OSU events or fundraisers.

HOW DOES THE OSU CAMPAIGN WORK?
Oklahoma State University allows faculty and staff members to participate in the annual United Way campaign through payroll deduction and fundraisers held on campus. OSU is the largest campaign contributor for United Way's campaign. By participating in OSU and United Way's annual campaign, you are making a collective impact on our community.
Coordinators throughout OSU volunteer to organize each department's annual campaign. Coordinators work with the OSU-United Way campaign chairs to determine goals, events and the best way to allow each employee the opportunity to donate.
