From November 4 through December 3, student groups will have the chance to reach out directly to their supporters via the 2019 Cornell Crowdfunding campaign. Crowdfunding, launched in 2013, has helped to raise more than $1.3 million in donations for Cornell student groups, who might otherwise struggle to make their projects visible.
Anyone can contribute and the minimum donation is $5. A large percentage of gifts received in prior campaigns have been less than $100.
“The support that the Johnson community continues to show the veterans on campus is truly life-changing for us,” says Frank Mozingo MBA ’20. Gifts to last year’s MBA Veterans Scholarship campaign supported scholarships for two veteran students in fall 2019. “I look forward to continuing our campaign to help make an MBA attainable to more veterans,” Mozingo says.
The 2019 Crowdfunding campaign will help Cornell student groups:
- design and build pedestrian footbridges for rurally isolated communities
- teach debate skills to audiences in countries around the globe
- race their solar-powered speedboat in a national competition
- furnish Loving House, the new LGBTQ+ program house on North Campus
“These individual gifts create a huge collective impact!” says Coreen Robinson, email and digital marketing manager with Cornell Annual Giving Programs. “Gifts to crowdfunding projects directly support current students as they pursue their passions.”
