Did you know Lawrence has a gift card policy?

To ensure compliance with the University’s tax withholding policies and reporting obligations, this policy sets forth guidelines and procedures for the purchase and distribution of gift cards.

Please note gift cards may be purchased with University funds (prior approval needed) only for:

• Student prizes
• Human research subjects participating in research studies (requiring Institutional Review Board approval).

Gift cards may not be purchased with University funds for the purpose of giving an employee or a volunteer a “gift”, “reward”, or “thank you”.

Please view the policy at the link provided.   The policy outlines the procedures which need to be followed before the purchase and after the distribution of gift cards.
