Check Deposit Procedures
Deposits to Sponsored Projects
Submit sponsored project deposits to Sponsored Projects Accounting, Nord Hall, 6th Floor, C1 (Mail Stop 7037). If using campus mail use a confidential envelope marked "personal to be opened by addressee only." Payers (e.g. sponsoring agencies) should send their checks directly to Sponsored Projects Accounting. Research, special programs, training, and miscellaneous accounts can be identified by their budget type.
Submit charitable contributions to Advancement Services, University West/BioEnterprise Building, Room 406. As noted in IRS Publication 526, a charitable contribution is a contribution or gift to, or for the use of, a qualified organization such as CWRU. It is voluntary and is made without receiving, or expecting to receive, anything of substantial value. For a contributor to claim a tax deduction they must be received and acknowledged by Development Services.
Submit all non-charitable deposits to the university Cashier, Yost Hall room 165.
