2023 100% OILERS CAMPAIGN FAQS
Every year, UF hosts the 100% Oilers Campaign. This worthy effort supports a broad variety of initiatives. The 100% Oilers Campaign creates opportunities. Our opportunity for this year? We are seeking 100% participation because we are 100% Oilers. For more information beyond these FAQ’s visit our 100% Oilers Employee Campaign page.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE CAMPAIGN?
All full-time, part-time and adjunct employees are encouraged to participate. Additionally, if you are a UF graduate, your gift to the campaign will also impact the University’s alumni participation rate, which is reported to U.S. News & World Report.
HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE TO THE FACULTY & STAFF CAMPAIGN?
There are several ways. By far, the most popular option is payroll deduction. A modest monthly contribution can, over several years, multiply into a sizeable gift. If you prefer, you can also make a one-time gift.
• Give online — you can make a credit card gift online anytime
• Check or credit card — Return the contribution form to University Advancement in the enclosed envelope when you receive your faculty and staff fundraising appeal.
• Payroll deduction — Complete the online form
DOES IT MATTER HOW MUCH I GIVE?
No. The goal of the 100% Oilers Campaign is participation. It’s not about the size of the gift. It’s about the participation rate, and we truly hope we can achieve 100 percent participation.
IS THERE A MINIMUM AMOUNT FOR PAYROLL DEDUCTION?
WHERE CAN I DIRECT MY GIFT?
Whether you make a gift to support endowments to recruit and retain outstanding faculty, provide scholarships to ensure deserving students can follow their dreams, or support any of the many worthy initiatives; you are helping to transform the future of our University. In fact, all gifts to the University from faculty, staff and retirees will count toward the campaign. So no matter where you direct your contribution, you’ll help UF.

WHEN WILL MY PAYROLL DEDUCTION START?
