Annual Giving has launched its first crowdfunding page for registered student organizations — HuskyFunds.
Crowdfunding has become a popular platform for university fundraising campaigns over the last few years.
Annual Giving wanted to provide more options for student organizations to raise money for their current needs — equipment, materials, educational events, etc.
With up to 240 registered student organizations currently on campus, our goal is to provide another option to raise money.
The first project is for Film Board. “Film Board is such a big part of this campus and the local community” Associate Director for Annual Giving Jenn Biekkola said.
“We thought they would be the perfect group to launch our initiative.”
Film Board is wrapping up a very successful fundraising campaign designed to overhaul the current speaker system that is more than 16 years old. The organization strives to stay up to date with technology and this is the latest step. The HuskyFunds initiative will help them raise money for installation costs associated with the project.
Check out HuskyFunds online for more information and to donate to Film Board.
