FAQ


Q. Can I give more than once to have more gifts count for my school?

Yes, simply return to the giving page, select where you want to support and make another gift. You can give as many times as you like.


Q. I graduated from more than one UB school—which school gets credit? Or, I’m a friend of UB—which school gets credit?

You select what school gets participation credit for your gift when you select that school from the donation page. You can return to that page after making one gift to make another gift and give ‘credit’ to another unit.


Q. Can I mail a gift in and have it count?

Sure, simply indicate on the memo line of your check that you’d like your gift to be part of our Giving Tuesday efforts and remember to let us know what school you’d like your participation to count towards.

Q. Why can't I find a fund?

Enter the area that you'd like to support in the second to last question before pressing the submit button, be sure to also tell us what unit you want your bow credit to count for.


Q. Is it safe to make my gift online?

Absolutely. Giving Day utilizes a technology called GiveGab that is PCI Level 1-compliant. Credit card information will not be stored and is not accessible to GiveGab. The contact information you provide to the University of Baltimore will remain private and secure.


Q. Is there a minimum gift amount?

We ask that you make your gift $10 or more for this effort.


Q. Is my Giving Day contribution tax-deductible?

Gifts to support the University of Baltimore are tax-deductible. After making a gift, you will receive an email confirmation that will serve as your receipt for tax purposes. Please consult your tax adviser if you have questions.


Q. Does it cost anything to give through #BowOnPoe? How much of my gift will UB receive?

There is a 3% technology fee and a 2.2% (+ $.30) bank fee for online donations. You have the option to cover these fees in addition to your gift. Note: Any donations processed outside of the Giving Day Period, through GiveGab.com, or subsequent recurring donations are subject to transaction fees outlined on GiveGab.com.


Q. Can I give to a fund other than my school’s fund and still have my gift as part of the school competition?

By selecting 'Other' and typing in the specific program or fund you can accomplish that. Each 'Other' selection must have one clear designation, and the gift amount of unique 'Other' gifts can't be split. In addition to the program or fund designation, please indicate the unit you would like to receive your bow credit.


Q. Why is 'No Results? Give to Other' a fund option?

Donors may support specific funds within schools and colleges by selecting 'Other' and typing in the specific program. Each 'Other' selection must have one clear designation, and the gift amount of unique 'Other' gifts can't be split. In addition to the fund designation, please indicate the unit you would like to receive your bow credit.
