Utah Valley University (UVU) is more than just a campus—it’s a community of dedicated individuals who want to see the world become a better place. To be part of UVU's Employee Giving Program, named I AM UVU, demonstrates your commitment to exceptional care, exceptional accountability, and exceptional results at UVU and in your own life. Your individual story contributes to a greater legacy on campus.


The Utah Valley University employee giving campaign is an annual giving initiative focused on combining efforts across campus to support students in their dreams of achieving an education. One of the best parts about working at UVU is the role we play as faculty and staff, using our time, energy and passion to write UVU’s story, advance its mission, and make the university and our community a better place. Because of your dedicated support, UVU is able to concentrate on and continually fulfill its role as a dual-mission university providing exceptional care to students.

We recognize that, as an integral member of the faculty or staff at UVU, you already play an important part in UVU’s mission and are grateful to you for extending that reach to include donating to a scholarship or program that is important to you. Thanks for believing in UVU’s mission and choosing to positively impact the experience UVU’s students have on campus by your generous donation.

Payroll Deduction

This is the quickest and easiest method to donate to a UVU area(s) and/or to community partners that interest you without incurring a big hit on the wallet. If all UVU employees donate, the cumulative effort will have a significant impact in supporting students. Donations can be as little as $1 per paycheck – we welcome all amounts and are grateful for your contribution! Set up or modify your payroll deduction by visiting our Employee Payroll Deduction Form. For more information, visit our Employee Giving FAQs page.
