Faculty & Staff Giving

A distinguishing characteristic of Butler University faculty and staff is a tremendous commitment to our students. In the classroom, in athletic competition, and in the community, Butler students are supported throughout their time on campus and into their careers. Your commitment to our students is evident in so many ways including through your incredible generosity.

Faculty and Staff wishing to make a gift to Butler through a payroll deduction may do so by filling out this online form.

Faculty and Staff Giving Challenge

In an effort to inspire new and increased giving from faculty and staff, President and Mrs. Danko have again generously gifted $20,000 to create a Faculty and Staff Giving Challenge. This challenge provides a dollar-for-dollar match on new and increased gifts from Butler faculty and staff, effectively doubling the impact of these donations.

New donors who make a gift of at least $25, or renewed donors who increase their previous year’s gift(s) by at least $25, will be eligible for the challenge match. Faculty/staff donors may support any Butler University gift fund and the challenge dollars will follow the gift.

How to Participate

New Faculty and Staff Donors
Gifts of $25 or more will be matched in full up to $500 maximum.

Renewed Faculty and Staff Donors
Any gift increase of $25 or more over last year’s gift will receive a match on the gift’s increased amount, up to $5,000.

Example: If a donor made a $500 gift in fiscal year 2020 and a $750 gift in fiscal year 2021, the $250 increase would be matched by the challenge. The total deposit to the fund (gift + challenge) would be $1,000.
