Every year Oregon holds a Charitable Fund Drive for state and university employees. Donations can be made by check, credit card, or convenient payroll deduction. The CFD has a long list of charities you can earmark your gifts to. The CFD reduces the cost to charities of fundraising and reduces the costs for givers, and lets them opt out of spam and junkmail. University employees can sign up here. (Don’t forget that, for this year at least, the IRS will let you deduct up to $300 in donations even if you don’t itemize. I believe all donations are deductible on your Oregon income tax.)
In an effort to promote a little altruistic competition, the CFD posts the number and total of donations by department. Here is the current data (the drive closes Dec 31). The Duck Athletic Department and it’s well-paid AD and coaches are missing because their donations so far total $0. Last year they gave a total of $150.
