Baylor University's employees have a rich tradition of philanthropy. They care deeply for their community, and whether they are giving of their time, their talents or their treasures, they are making a difference in the places and spaces where they work and live.

Thank you for being part of this wonderful tradition. Whether through a one-time gift or through payroll deduction, your gifts make a difference here.

Below is an example of how making a small monthly gift through payroll deduction can add up quickly:

Monthly Payroll
$4.17 x 12 pay periods = $50.00
$8.33 x 12 pay periods = $100.00

Bi-Weekly Payroll
$2.08 x 24 pay periods = $50.00
$4.17 x 24 pay periods = $100.00

Compassion Fund

The Baylor Family Compassion Fund was created to help members of the Baylor Family in times of need.

If you know someone who needs assistance - Baylor faculty, staff, official retiree, or vendor partner - please direct them to the By-Laws and the Application for Assistance.

Baylor University Faculty Senate and Staff Council

The Baylor University Faculty Senate and Staff Council serve as the representative and legislative body of the faculty and staff respectively. Faculty have chosen to come alongside The Store, our student food pantry that combats hunger on campus, and staff have chosen to support the Baylor University Staff Endowed Scholarship, offering financial support to help students pay for a degree.

Baylor University Scholarships, Excellence Funds & Student Emergency Funds

There are hundreds of scholarships, endowed excellence funds and emergency and priority funds, like the President’s Excellence Fund, that provide critically important resources for our faculty and staff, as well as financial support for our students. You can explore where you can make an impact at Baylor on the giving priorities page here. If you have questions about giving to Baylor, or about how you make an even greater impact and leave your legacy here, please send us an email at
