The Office of Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving is now accepting fall semester project applications for the University’s peer-to-peer crowdfunding platform, which is intended to help raise philanthropic support for student, faculty, and staff projects. Crowdfunding is a project-specific online fundraising tool to solicit online donations via email and social media, with expert assistance from the Office of Annual Giving.
Through crowdfunding, members of the Monmouth community can create, participate in, and share projects dedicated to supporting student success and institutional achievement. Last year, 27 crowdfunding projects raised more than $135,000 and received over 1,400 gifts. Examples include the President’s Relief Fund for students financially affected by COVID-19, the Class of 2021 Giving Campaign, and Monmouth Hawks Fan Cutouts, which supported the Athletic Director’s Excellence Fund.
Fall 2021 projects will launch after October 1 and can remain active through #GivingTuesday on Nov 30.
