Donations to the Foundation
All gifts to departments/divisions are to be deposited with the Foundation. The Foundation will issue an official receipt for each gift for the donor's tax records. The Foundation establishes restricted or endowed accounts in accordance with the wishes of the donor and Foundation's policies. A weekly report is created for each department which receives a donation.
New/Change Index Form
Please complete the New/Change Index Form when a new index number or a change in a current index number is desired.
A Payment Voucher Form is completed when payment is to be made from a Foundation account. Place an "F" in the chart of accounts and include your Foundation index code. An original invoice must be provided for payment. The Foundation will mail the payment directly to the vendor or return to the department, if requested. Please allow 7 to 10 working days for a payment to be processed. The Foundation cannot process payments for wages or honorariums.
Transfer of Funds
The Transfer of Funds form is completed when Foundation funds need to be transferred to a University account. The transfer form can also be used for a transfer of funds between Foundation accounts. Please note: Once Foundation funds have been transferred to a University index, they may not be transferred back to the Foundation.
Gift Information Report

Verification for the value of the gift must be attached to the form to receive gift credit. Non-monetary gifts can include equipment, software, property, livestock, etc. If known, include applicable Foundation account number on form.
