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.

Wagonstage 50th

Wagonstage Children's Theatre Endowment: 50K for 50 More Years of Outdoor Family Theatre in Calgary

UCalgary's Wagonstage has been bringing outdoor family theatre to Calgary since 1971!  For half a century, emerging artists from the Drama program at the School of Creative & Performing Arts (SCPA) have written, designed, directed, and acted in these delightful summer performances for thousands of Calgarians. We are thrilled to launch our crowdfunding campaign for the Wagonstage Children's Theatre Endowment to ensure that affordable family arts programming continues for 50 years and more!
