Student Involvement




(powered by ScaleFunder)

A digital fundraising platform that gives your registered student organization (RSO) the power to harness transformational giving through crowdfunding. 
Apply at to gain financial support through the campus community while your alumni, parents, friends, fans, and even students can see the impact of their gifts and connect with your organization on a personal level.


Students are encouraged to plan fundraising events on campus to help support their organization. Selling tickets to an event, having a bake sale, or holding a raffle are just a few great ways to raise money for your organization.
RSOs should review the RSO Manual, found on Student Involvement's Website (under the "Organizations" tab), for current fundraising guidelines, and also be sure to register their fundraising events on CougSync.

When planning an event or activity on campus, groups can seek out local businesses or other interested RSOs to collaborate, partner with, or sponsor their event. Perhaps a similar RSO partners with your group and covers the venue cost in exchange for artistic or logistical input regarding the event. Perhaps a local business sponsors your group's event, donating some money in exchange for putting their logo on your event's advertisements. There are many financial possibilities and opportunities available when collaborating or working with others in the community.
