You decide how your crowdfunding projects are deployed, marketed, and managed.
Give your users the ability to tell their story their way, without losing control of the messaging. Add, edit, or suspend or remove projects as you need.
Streamlined Project Intake
We’ve built a project intake approach that ensures you and your participants spend less time sorting through requirements and more time fundraising.
Categorize and sort projects according to your own structure: by department, topic, engagement potential… or however you choose.
Suggest amounts for donation on a per-project basis, and how you see fit.
The Funding Tree
Allow users to donate to a specific project, program, faculty or the institution.
Receive automatic, bi-weekly, monthly, or annual recurring donations from outside sponsors, or staff (deducted from payroll).
Let the public decide vote for their favourites. You assign donations to the winning projects.
Allows for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and others to contribute a memorial fund in honour of a lost loved one.
Target donors who have the ability to make a large contribution to make a significant dent in the campaign goal.
Have a sponsor or the institution 'match' the amount raised for a specific project.
