FAQs

How can I make a contribution?

To make a contribution, visit kpcgc.org and click on the Contribute Now button. Read the instructions on the pledge portal home page and log-in to make a donation. You can make a one-time contribution with a check, credit card or payroll deduction. You can also spread your gift through 24 payroll deductions.

If I make a one-time contribution, when is it processed?

One-time check or credit card contributions are charged to the account/card at the end of the month when the pledge is made in October. The contribution is paid out to the non-profit in November of 2017. One-time payroll contributions are deducted in the first pay period of the 2018 fiscal year in January. Payment to the non-profit organizations occurs by March 2018.

If I make a pledge through reoccurring credit card or automatic payroll deductions, when will the deduction begin?

Your pledge through reoccurring credit card or automatic payroll deductions will take place in the 2018 fiscal year (January - December). Your first deduction will begin on January 2018. The contribution is paid out beginning in March 2018 through February 2019.

Is there a minimum amount I can contribute?

If you are utilizing regular payroll deductions then the suggested minimum donation is $5 per pay period, which is a minimum $120 annual contribution (no system minimum donation). If you are utilizing a one time payroll deduction, then the suggested minimum is $50 ($26 system minimum).

Is my contribution tax deductible?
