Thank you so much for serving as a coordinator for the UMBC Maryland Charity Campaign! As a coordinator for your department you are instrumental in helping us raise awareness about the benefits of giving through the MCC.
As you continue to support the Maryland Charity Campaign over the next two months, we believe it is important to provide you with as much information as possible. Each year, there are elements of the campaign that change, and it is our responsibility to ensure the campus community understands these changes so that we can deliver a seamless donation experience.
Below are some resources designed to assist you in delivering our message of the importance and impact of the campaign, as well as logistical details for documentation, goal-setting, and donation processing.
MCC information and resources
- MCC giving email message
- Did You Know? educational document
- Step-by-step instructions for donating online
This year, contributors to the Maryland Charity Campaign will need their Campus ID to create an account on the site to give online. Your Campus ID (also known as the invite code) can be found on your pledge form and on your campus card. If you have given to the campaign last year, you should already have an account on the website. Please login using your existing username (typically your campus email) and password. If you have forgotten your password, you can recover it using the Forgot Password link on the site.
Because more and more donations are being made online, we ask that you advise all participants to print a copy of their confirmation email for record keeping and submit it to you. Having gifts officially documented in this manner will provide us with the most accurate and timely reports on our progress.
We are still accepting cash donations! If employees would like to give cash to the campaign, please direct them to write “Cash” in the Preferred Payment Method column under the “Designating Your Gift” section of the form, along with their donation amount in the respective field.
How to handle employees who want to give but do not have a customized pledge form
Each year, we are asked to submit an employee list to the campaign so that they can generate customized pledge forms for our campus. Unfortunately, due to the timing of the campaign, this means some newer or contract employees may not have received customized pledge forms. If they would like to donate offline, they will have to fill out a blank pledge form.
This year, employees without a pledge form will be able to donate online! Please advise all employees who would like to donate online but do not have a pledge form to Request an Invite Code to create an account online.
We recommend you have several blank pledge forms available in the event a member of the campus community without a custom form would like to donate. To streamline this giving process, we ask that you fill out the Department, Agency code, and Check distribution number prior to distributing the forms.
