Supporting the next great idea at Marshall University!

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a way for students, faculty, staff and alumni to rally around passion-based initiatives that impact our entire campus community. This is a great way to generate support for projects and more.

This platform provides an outlet for MU students, faculty, staff, organizations, programs and alumni to use the power of crowdfunding to raise money and generate support for certain approved projects.

Marshall University has been changing the world for nearly 200 years. When we work together, we can have a positive impact on our students, our campuses, and the global community. Our crowdfunding platform is an opportunity for members of the Herd to inspire change by both donating to and fundraising for the causes they are most passionate about.
