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 platform for advocates 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, 35 crowdfunding projects raised more than $106,000 and received over 1,050 gifts. Examples of past projects include the Black Student Union, Wrestling Club, and the Class of 2023 Giving Campaign.
Fall 2023 projects will launch on Oct. 16 and can remain active through Giving Tuesday on Nov. 28.
If you would like more information about crowdfunding, please save the date for our virtual information session which will take place on Sept. 20 at 3:30 pm. You can RSVP for the information session by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the club/organization you will be representing.
