Penn’s Way Q & A
Q: Can I participate in Penn’s Way without donating money?
A: Yes, we encourage all employees to participate regardless of their planned gift amount. Employees who contribute elsewhere and/or those wishing to participate without giving may do so by checking the appropriate box on the online pledge form or by indicating a $0 gift amount on the paper pledge form. All employees who participate will be eligible for the weekly employee prize raffle as well as the midway prize and grand prize.
Q: How do I contribute and/or participate in Penn’s Way?
A: University and Health System employees may contribute and/or participate in Penn’s Way online or by completing a paper pledge form. Online participants may contribute via payroll deduction, cash, check, or credit card. Paper pledge participants may contribute via payroll deduction, cash, or check. Please note that credit cards may only be processed for online participants and that all major credit cards are accepted.
Q: Will my contribution via payroll deduction occur pre- or post-tax?
A: All contributions made via payroll deduction will be deducted after taxes.
Q: How do I appropriately deduct my 2012 Penn’s Way contribution from my taxes?
A: Penn’s Way 2012 contributions made via payroll deduction will occur in 2012 and should, therefore, be considered deductions for your 2012 taxes. Please consult your accountant or tax advisor regarding contributions made via cash, check, or credit card.
Q: I have already completed the online pledge form but now wish to change my pledge amount and/or payment method. Can I do that?
A: If you initially elected to give via payroll deduction, you may change the amount or frequency of that deduction at any time prior to November 16, 2012. You may also change your contribution method from payroll deduction to cash, check, or credit card during the same time period. If you initially elected to give via cash or check, please follow-up with your Coordinator or Captain to inquire about changing your gift amount or payment method. Unfortunately, we are unable to change credit card payments once they are entered and confirmed by the donor.
