Back projects headed by UCalgary researchers, faculty, students and alumni through our crowdfunding initiative

Creating the future we dream of together

UCrowdfund is the university’s crowdfunding platform for projects initiated by UCalgary faculty, researchers, students and alumni.

When you support a UCrowdfund campaign, 100 per cent of your gift goes to the project — versus some crowdfunding platforms that take an administration fee — and you receive a tax receipt for your donation. If a project goal isn’t met, the team will still receive all of the funds donated to go towards their project.

After making your gift, spread the word and share your support on social media and throughout your networks. The more people that know about a project, the higher the chance it will reach its fundraising goal.

Grizzly Dude: PTSD Support

Jeremy’s goal is to raise funds to advance research regarding mental health supports for people suffering from PTSD. He seeks to fund research with two specific goals:

  1. Develop best practices to match evidence-based treatments with those who experience PTSD
  2. Help PTSD survivors successfully navigate the complex and confusing range of mental health supports made available to them.

Your gift will play a direct role in establishing a fund that will transform mental health support for people living with PTSD. Join us in making a lasting impact on the lives of those affected by PTSD.
