Thank you very much for contributing to The Helps Education Fund!


100% of your generous donation will be used in ways that will improve educational outcomes for students, particularly for students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Please read the following information carefully to learn how you can make a donation by credit card or by check.

 

Instructions for Making a Donation by Credit Card:


Please read the below information carefully to ensure that your donation goes directly to The Helps Education Fund.


At the bottom of this page you will find a link that directs you to a secure on-line Gift Form. This Gift Form is connected with North Carolina State University’s (NCSU’s) College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS) because The Helps Education Fund is housed and operated within NCSU and CHASS. After completing the Gift Form (using the specific directions below), you will be able to make your donation directly to The Helps Education Fund by credit card.

 

1. On the Gift Form, complete all of your basic contact information.

 

2. When the form asks, “Reason for gift,” please select “In Support of” and also type “Helps Education Fund” in the space provided.

 

3. When the form states, “I wish to direct my gift to,” please select “Helps Education Fund” from the drop-down menu.

 

4. Complete all other parts of the Gift Form as indicated, and be sure to type your initials in the box at the bottom.

 

5. You will then be directed to the secure NCSU payment site so that you can provide your credit card information. On this page you should also write down your Order Number in case you want to reference this later.

 

6. After confirming your donation and credit card payment, you will then be directed to a page with your confirmation number and the total amount of money that you donated. Please print this page for your records. Within about two weeks of your donation, you should receive your tax-deductible receipt by mail from NCSU/CHASS.

 

7. Important: After you have made your donation using the steps above, please send a brief message to helpsprogram@gmail.com. In the subject line please write “Made a HELPS Donation by Credit Card” and in the message, simply write your name. If you’d like to include additional information in that email, you may; but no additional information is needed. This email message is an important final step because it allows us to more quickly track all money that will be available in The Helps Education Fund.
