Crowdfunding applications open

Raise money for new uniforms, fund a scholarship or host an event for students and faculty. All of this is possible with crowdfunding. Check out the points below to see if a project is a good fit for crowdfunding: 

  • Specific project or need: Quickly and easily explain what the funding is for. 
  • Realistic fundraising goal: Is the project goal between $500-$5,000? 
  • A specific group dedicated to working on getting the project funded: Is there a team of faculty, staff or students who have time to invest in creating the project? Is it a project that friends, family, colleagues and the community will want to support? 
  • A sense of urgency: Is there a deadline to raise the money? 

Crowdfunding is not a grant but an opportunity for the campus to learn effective ways to connect with communities and raise money towards goals. To learn more about the process and see past campaigns, check out the crowdfunding website at: https://eaglesgive.uwlax.edu
