GoGive! Direct is Simple.

- GCU Members are permitted to use GoGive! Direct twice in a calendar year (January 1-December 31) for a total dollar for dollar match of up to $100/member.
- The 2021 annual budget will be $25,000. Applications are accepted on a first come first served basis and must be completed online.
- Applicants must provide all requested information on the online form or the application will not be processed.
- Applicants must submit a copy or scan of the donation receipt on the charitable organization’s letterhead showing amount. Receipt can be mailed or emailed to the GCU.
- GoGive! Direct donations will not be made to a GCU GoGive! fundraising activity, a church or charity already receiving a GCU Matching Fund donation in that calendar year or to a church as a match of the member’s regular Sunday donation.
- Examples of acceptable charities include, but are not limited to: food banks, community libraries, most 501 (c) 3 charities, senior care facilities, veteran facilities, pet shelters, scholarship funds and individuals suffering a loss or major illness. (Please note that donations to individuals will be limited to a maximum of $300 in GCU GoGive! Direct funds and must have two forms of verificaton-a cancelled check showing payment to the individual and a note from the recipient that the funds were received for the specific cause presented in the request.)
- Checks will be made payable and sent directly to the benefiting charity. Checks will note that the donation is made in the name of the GCU member.
All GCU members are eligible to submit two (2) GCU GoGive! Direct donation requests per calendar year for a total dollar for dollar match of $100. You are a GCU member if you have a GCU life insurance or annuity product in your name.
