Crowdfund UC Davis

As of February 2020, you have the opportunity to support UC Davis' legacy of producing leaders, change-makers and solving the world's problems through Crowdfund UC Davis, a program that enables students, faculty, and staff groups to raise funds for specific projects through a university-sanctioned crowdfunding platform.

Crowdfund UC Davis allows you to be part of a grassroots fundraising movement that enables a variety of campus groups to make projects related to ground-breaking research, student support, and public service a reality. You can find a number of projects to support based on your interests and encourage your friends and family to do the same. 

Give Now

Each project within the Crowdfund UC Davis program is led by the students, faculty, and staff doing the groundwork necessary to make UC Davis a leading institution of higher-learning. A gift of any size makes a difference. Visit today!

The Crowdfund UC Davis program includes two month-long cohorts each year, in February and October, with the goal of eventually expanding to three times per academic year. Each Crowdfund UC Davis project is required to have or create a fund affiliated with the UC Davis Foundation or UC Davis Regents in order to participate.

All project teams must submit an application that undergoes thorough review by the Annual and Special Gifts Program (ASGP) and Advancement Services for project viability and legality. If their application is approved, they will also be required to attend a training session on crowdfunding. 

Project teams will be responsible for following Crowdfund UC Davis Guidelines, creating their site, as well as implementing their own email and social media outreach to promote their projects and meet their financial project goals. 

Applications for Crowdfund UC Davis will be accepted in November for the February cohort and in March for the October cohort. For more information, email
