Crowdfunding the Next Great Idea
CMU's Crowdfunding platform allows you to directly support groups of Carnegie Mellon students, faculty, staff and alumni by donating to projects that impact and benefit students and/or others within the CMU community. These passion projects have modest fundraising goals and cover a wide range of topics and areas, from visionary transportation systems to humanitarian trips.
Visit CMU Crowdfunding
to explore projects from hardworking, innovative CMU community members. Crowdfunding projects are reviewed, vetted and selected by a committee before fundraising on the platform can begin. Projects launch on a rolling basis beginning in October and run through May each year and each run for about 30 days. Check the site for new projects or updates on your favorite projects. Like all gifts to CMU, your gifts to Crowdfunding projects count as a charitable contribution.
