Submit a Project Idea!

Now Accepting Applications! 

Fill out this application to express interest in launching a Crowdfunding campaign. The purpose of a Crowdfunding campaign is to assist Cal Poly-affiliated organizations, programs, and departments by providing a platform for them to raise money for events and expenses, among other financial burdens. To qualify, projects must be sponsored by a Cal Poly department and/or organization and approved and sponsored by a faculty member or advisor. 

We are looking to highlight projects that create a positive impact for our student body, inside or outside of the classroom. Crowdfunding projects are hosted year-round and we will work with you to launch a successful project.

Applications for the Spring Crowdfunding campaign will be considered in early 2024, so stay tuned. Poly Gives will be happening during Open House weekend April 11th -13th, and will be an amazing opportunity for your crowdfunding project to get the support it needs.
