In general, payments less than $5,000 from Foundation accounts can and should be processed through the University’s established processes and systems (i.e. through Accounts Payable or the University Payroll Office).
“Manual checks” are prepared on a weekly basis for signature by the Assistant Treasurer or Treasurer of the Foundation.
Fully and correctly completed requests for manual checks must be received in the Foundations Accounting & Investments office by Tuesday at 4 p.m. each week in order to be processed, signed and ready for release each Friday. The Manual Check Request Form has been developed for this purpose.
