Crowdfunding leverages the power of social networks to raise money for a project or cause. PLU students and employees looking to fundraise for their group may benefit from PLU’s crowdfunding platform, GiveCampus. Since 2019, groups across PLU have raised over $45,000 for their various causes. View current projects here.

Additional information can be found on the Crowdfunding at PLU Information Flyer.
