The Office of Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving is now accepting fall 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 campaign in which a passionate group of advocates, with assistance from the Office of Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving, solicit online donations via email and social media.

Through this unique fundraising tool, members of the Monmouth community can come together to create, participate in, and share projects dedicated to supporting student success and institutional achievement. Last academic year, 14 crowdfunding projects were supported by over 500 gifts and more than $65,000.

Fall 2020 projects are expected to launch after Oct. 1 and can remain active through Dec. 31.
