Welcome to the Gift Processing Department
A unit of the University of Maine Foundation, the Gift Processing Department provides the service of processing all university contributions including gifts, pledges, and pledge payments. The unit receives, records, and legally receipts gifts of all forms – monitary and in-kind. All donations are recorded to the the university’s fundraising database (Advance).
Our goal is to ensure that donations are in compliance with university policies and federal regulations, are in accordance with donor intent, and that security and confidentiality is maintained in the processing of all records.
Note – When funds are to be directed to a chartfield string or designation intended for gifts, whether the funds are gifts or non-gifts, you must submit the deposit to the Gift Processing Department with a completed Standard Gift Transmittal Form rather than to the Bursar’s Office. Please contact the Gift Processing Department if you have questions or need assistance.
More information is available within the pages of this site. In addition to general gift information, references, guides, forms, and information regarding employee money-handling responsibilities is provided. Please contact the Gift Processing Department with specific questions and concerns.
