Purdue Payroll Deduction

Payroll deduction gifts are an easy way for faculty and staff to support the mission of teaching, service and research in the University. Contributions through payroll deduction continue until the donor requests a change in deduction status. The support of faculty and staff sets an excellent example for all alumni and friends of the University. Thank you for sharing your talents and your resources.

Faculty and staff at all Purdue campuses can manage their payroll deductions through Employee Self Service in OnePurdue. If there are questions about current giving or payroll deduction, please contact Rita Baines, (765) 494-9124 or email.
