Purdue Payroll Deduction

It Starts at Home! 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 you have questions about current giving or need additional information about payroll deduction, please call Rita Baines at (765) 494-9124 or email her at
