Crowdfunding Projects

MSU Denver offers a custome crowdfunding platform to host your crowdfunding projects. Crowdfunding projects are NOT appropriate for all fundraising goals.

Crowdfunding projects are time-restricted fundraising campaigns with very specific fundraising goals. They rely upon social media marketing to the masses and leveraging the personal and professional relationships of the individuals benefiting from the raised money. Think this is the right fit for your goals? Learn more below and contact Bre Milnes to set up your project today.

Interested in starting a crowdfunding project?

MSU Denver has launched our very own crowdfunding platform (GiveCampus) to help the Roadrunner community bring projects you’re passionate about to life. The platform is open to all current students, faculty and staff to submit project ideas. Here are some of the basic guidelines for crowdfunding fundraising:

  • Project teams must consist of at least three MSU Denver students and/or faculty and staff
  • Projects may not raise funds designated for one specific individual
  • The duration of fundraising for your project cannot exceed 30 days
  • Fundraising goals are capped at $2,500 (unless prior approval is given)

Because our platform is administered by the MSU Denver Foundation, there are numerous advantages over traditional crowdfunding sites.

  • Projects using GiveCampus do not incur fees above the standard Foundation deposit fees (unlike other retail crowdfunding programs that charge per donation and/or flat fees).
  • The platform will be promoted by MSU Denver to provide awareness of projects among alumni and other related networks
  • Project teams receive all funds raised, even if the goal is not met
  • There is a dedicated crowdfunding team to work with you and help position your project for success

If you have a project you think would be a good fit for crowdfunding, please review the attached documents for further details and contact Bre Mines for more information.

Grant Support

Red Toolbox

Grant Toolkit

This handout is meant to guide you through the process of seeking foundation or corporate foundation support for your work. In many cases, we encourage you to contact a foundation directly to determine if your project aligns with its mission and strategy and to learn more about the process for requesting support.

Centrally Managed Entites

There are a handful of centrally managed corporations and foundations that should only be approached for funding through or with clearance from Corporate and Foundation Relations, at the request of either the funder’s leadership or the University’s. Search the centrally managed database here.


Alumni Information Request

University Advancement is the office of record for MSU Denver alumni information. MSU Denver faculty and staff may request alumni data for official university activities or projects using our online form.

It will be helpful if you know the answers to the following questions as you fill out the request:

1. What is the purpose of your request? How do you intend to use the data?

2. Who is your target audience?

3. Who should be excluded?

4. Will you be soliciting donations?

5. Do you want a separate mailing to go to each spouse/partner in the same household? Or would you like one mailing addressed to the couple together?

Once you know the answers to these questions, you’re ready to request your list. You are welcome to contact our Advancement Services team at [email protected] to discuss your request. We are happy to help you.

To protect the privacy of our constituents, alumni/constituent information released to university officials may not be retained beyond the timeframe for each specified use, nor may the data be copied, reproduced, or distributed to other internal or external parties without specific consent of University Advancement. Faculty and staff may not use information for personal or commercial/third-party use. Additionally, faculty and staff are prohibited from using information obtained from University Advancement for creating or maintaining independent databases. University Advancement regularly updates contact information and maintains an updated master database for alumni and other constituent information. Therefore, faculty and staff agree to destroy the data received within four weeks. If updated data is needed, you are welcome to request a new list.
