FAQ

When will my credit card be charged?

Your credit card is charged immediately upon finalizing your gift on the site. 

Is my contribution tax-deductible?

Yes! All gifts received through this platform are considered donations to City College and are thus tax-deductible. Donors will receive a tax receipt following gift processing. 

Where is my donation going?

If the project you support is fully funded, 100% of your donation will go directly to the project. There are no deductions of processing or overhead fees.

Can my employer match my gift? 

Yes! Contact your human resources office to see if your company has a matching gift program and how you can participate. Matching gifts are directed to the same designation as your original gift, and your contribution must be received before corporate matches can be accepted. If your program includes a printed form, please complete the form and send it to khill1@ccny.cuny.edu.

What if my project doesn't meet its funding goal?

The funds raised will still be released to the project sponsor. In the event that a project cannot be undertaken because of the shortfall, the money raised will be retained by City College for use on a project with similar goals. All donors will be notified about the status of the project funded.

What happens if a project is overfunded?

We will work with the project sponsor to determine whether the surplus should be used to expand or enhance the project, or reserved for use by similar projects in the future. All donors will be notified about the status of the project funded.

How do I take advantage of my employer's matching gifts program?

Call 212-650-7028 or email khill1@ccny.cuny.edu to get the fund number for the project you are supporting. Include the fund number when you file for the matching gift, and the matching gift will be added to the project total when it is received.
