Donate Through United Way

Children's Hospital staff members are encouraged to support community organizations by making a gift to any United Way agency of their choice through this year's United Way Campaign.

Children's has more than 60 funds to choose from.

This year's campaign runs from Monday, Oct. 3, 2011 to Friday, Dec. 2, 2011. All donations made through United Way will count as participation in our internal Employee Campaign.

This year, UPMC is making it easier than ever to make a donation to United Way:

1. MyHub (new this year!)

  • Children's Hospital physicians and employees are now able to make a donation to a United Way agency of their choice through MyHub.
    • Sign on to MyHub (username and password required)
    • Click on the Human Resources tab
    • Click on the "Give to the United Way" link on the left side of the screen under the My Payroll section. You will then be taken to the UPMC United Way webpage.
    • Click on "Pledge" and choose how you would like to make your donation.
    • Follow these step by step instructions to make a donation:
      • Payroll Deduction- Choose the number of deductions you would like to make. Deductions start the first pay period in January.
      • PTO Donations- Donate up to 8 hours of PTO. Click on the blue link at the bottom of the pledge payment page.
      • Credit Card- All major credit cards are accepted. You can make a one-time gift or set up multiple deductions.
      • Bill Me- A letter will be mailed to you to collect payment of your pledge.

2. Donate Your PTO (new this year!)

  • UPMC employees are now able to donate PTO to a United Way agency of their choice. Employees can donate up to 8 hours. (These hours are not counted toward the maximum PTO you are permitted to sell in the PTO sell program.)
  • Dollar value of your donation is based on your gross wages and all appropriate taxes will be withheld.
  • Donation of PTO can be made by logging in to MyHub and clicking on the "Give to the United Way" link under the Human Resources tab. (See above for further instructions.)
