About the Annual Fund
Endowment & Scholarships
Definition: Crowdfunding describes the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small donations of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet. It can be used to raise funds for a wide variety of projects initiated by faculty, staff and students at Clayton State University.
If your fundraising activity will support a recognized student organization (RSO), it must go through an application process and is subject to approval by the Student Affairs Business Office. The crowdfunding project must be acceptable based on the business policies and procedures for student organizations. Applications must be submitted online via Community. Please see the Business Policies & Procedures for Student Organizations for further details and for applicable guidelines for student organizations.
If you are not a member of an RSO, but your fundraising is associated with an approved university program or will support a CSU-related event or activity, it will need to be approved by the VP for Business and Operations and/or the VP for University Advancement. Please provide us with details regarding your planned crowdfunding activity at Crowdfunding Event Survey.
Please do not proceed with your fundraising efforts until your activity has been reviewed and you receive further instruction from University Advancement.
