About crowdfunding at the U of M

Making an impact is easy

The University of Minnesota Foundation crowdfunding website provides U supporters with an easy way to create customized fundraising pages for U causes. All gifts made on this site are tax deductible. Since launching the website in November 2014, U supporters have helped fundraise for everything from U medical research to student scholarships, and more.

Whether you’re raising funds as part of a U event or you want to fundraise for a U of M cause to mark an occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary, our online page builder makes it easy. Want to raise funds with others as a team? You can do that, too.
