Cornell-UPR Interuniversity Relief Program


Is my contribution tax-deductible?                                                                       

Yes! All gifts received through this platform are considered donations to Cornell University and are thus tax-deductible. Donors will receive a tax receipt following gift processing.

Where is my donation going?                                                                  

If the project you support is fully funded, 100% of your donation will go directly to the project. There are no deductions of processing or overhead fees.

What if my project doesn’t meet its funding goal?

If the campaign falls short of its funding goal, the funds raised will still be released to the project sponsor. In the event that a project cannot be undertaken because of the shortfall, the money raised will be retained by sponsoring college or unit for use on a project with similar goals.                                                                     

What happens if a project is overfunded?                                                                          

If a campaign raises more than it stated funding goal, we will work with the project sponsor to determine whether the surplus should be used to expand or enhance the project, or reserved for use by similar projects in the future.
