How to show your support for a crowdfunding campaign

  • Make a gift. Big or small, every gift counts.
  • Become an advocate. Create a GiveCampus account and gain the ability to track your impact. See how many clicks, gifts, and dollars your outreach generates.
  • Share the campaign by word of mouth or via the campaign’s Facebook and Twitter buttons.
  • Create a matching gift or challenge to encourage others in your network to give. You can match dollar for dollar up to a fixed amount and even structure your challenge to be based on donor participation.
  • Upload a personal plea – a short video to explain your support and to encourage others to give.
