UCrowdfund

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.

 

Featured campaigns:

Bridging the Gap

Bridging the Gap

The documentary, Bridging the Gap, aims to examine immigrant anxiety and trauma as they relate to wellness and mental health, and will empower newcomer families by sharing their stories of resilience and hope in their own words. The goal is to foster productive and positive relationships between resettled families and school/university partners.

One Health Summer Program

One Health Summer Program
