Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project by raising small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet.


Welcome to Minnesota State University, Mankato's Crowdfunding homepage. Crowdfunding is a community-focused fundraising platform where students, faculty, and affiliates can share their stories and raise the money they need. Check out the Campus Causes on our homepage to fund your philanthropic passion. Invest in the causes and communities within the University that you care about most. Your donation makes an immediate impact and inspires students with big ideas who are solving real-world problems.
