MSU Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding

MSU Crowdfunding is an online crowdfunding platform for Missouri State students, faculty and staff to raise money and generate support their great ideas. The power of the crowd can bring together many small gifts through a far-reaching network of Missouri State alumni, students, faculty and staff, and their family, friends and colleagues.

The Missouri State University Foundation is now partnering with GiveCampus.com, to provide a resource for Missouri State University students, faculty, staff, organizations and programs to use the power of crowdfunding to raise money and generate support for certain approved projects.

How does MSU Crowdfunding work?

We invite you to check out MissouriStateCrowdfunding.org and explore the campaigns that are in progress. Sign up to be an advocate and spread the good news about projects that inspire and excite you. You can do this easily through your social media connections from the crowdfunding site. By creating interest in the project, you  help our teams in meeting their fundraising and project goals.

By making a tax-deductible contribution online through this secure and convenient crowdfunding site, you will be supporting the effort, moving the campaign forward, and positively impacting the outcome of the project. Campaign creators will provide feedback and progress as the campaigns move toward completion.

This is an exciting opportunity for our campus community, and we greatly appreciate your support of this initiative.

How can I raise money for my project?

If you are currently a student, or a member of faculty or staff, then you can submit an idea to be considered for MissouriStateCrowdfunding.org. There are many tips to successful crowdfunding. It is important to think through several steps before launching a campaign. We encourage you to utilize the resources available on the site.

You can start by submitting an application. Once your application has been reviewed by appropriate University and Foundation administration, you will be contacted with approval or a request for more  information.

Once approved, join the online MSU Crowdfunding community and submit your project at MissouriStateCrowdfunding.org. We take you step by step in setting up your project and share pointers along the way to help you reach your fundraising goal. Invite collaborators to join your team to help you with your campaign. Advocates can create gift matching opportunities and issue special challenges.

MissouriStateCrowdfunding.org can help you create a buzz and share your enthusiasm about your project with family, friends, colleagues and the community. Asking for support and awareness through social media, personal networks, and email is a great way to build interest for your project.

We are excited to be able to provide this opportunity for the Missouri State campus community. We encourage you to be a part of this program that can assist the unique ideas and goals of our students, faculty and staff.

Please email crowdfunding@missouristate.edu should you have any questions or comments. Thank you!
