The Office of Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving is now accepting spring semester project applications for the University’s crowdfunding platform, an online fundraising tool intended to solicit philanthropic support for student, faculty, and staff projects. Crowdfunding is a project-specific online fundraising platform for advocates to solicit online donations via email and social media, with assistance from the Office of Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving.
Through this fundraising tool, members of the Monmouth community can create, participate in, and share projects dedicated to supporting student success and institutional achievement. So far this fiscal year, 29 crowdfunding projects have been supported by over 1,000 gifts and have raised more than $100,000. Examples include the President’s Relief Fund for students financially affected by COVID-19, the Class of 2021 Giving Campaign, and funding for a drip irrigation system in the Virginia A. Cory Community Garden.
Spring 2021 projects are expected to launch after March 1 and can remain active through June 30.
