Campus Emergency Poles to be Tested Dec. 26-30

UNC Police will test the campus emergency poles while the university is closed next week. The testing will be only for the emergency poles; messages will not be sent to cell phones or UNC email accounts. During testing the emergency poles' lights will flash and multiple test messages will be broadcast from them throughout the week. A test of the full Emergency Alert System will be scheduled after spring semester starts. For more information about UNC's Emergency Alert System, visit the Emergency Alert website.

Year-End Gift Handling: Save Postmarked Donation Envelopes

To ensure donors get credit for a gift in the 2017 tax year, please forward all gifts and the accompanying envelopes to the Foundation (Campus Box 20). The postmarked envelope is required by the IRS to give proper credit in the correct tax year for gifts via check. Because campus mail will be closed the last week of December, please begin forwarding envelopes immediately and continue into early January until all 2017 tax-year gifts are submitted. All checks received in January without an accompanying postmarked envelope, will be counted in January as 2018 tax-year gifts.

For credit card gifts, please direct all donors to the UNC Give Site at www.unco.edu/give/. For a credit card gift to count as a 2017 donation, the credit card must be charged no later than 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31, and the website is the best utility for this purpose. Hand-written credit card numbers, regardless of postmarked date, will be counted on the day the card number is received and charged by the Foundation, which could be in 2018.

If there are any questions on end-of-year giving, further information will be available on www.unco.edu/give/.

Thank you for your assistance with year-end donations in support of UNC.
