About Crowdfunding

What is University of New Haven crowdfunding? 

Make it Happen is the University of New Haven's community fundraising platform. Student organizations, faculty and staff can create projects to raise money for innovative projects, service trips, events, research and other University-specific initiatives

How can you make it happen? 

Through crowdfunding, you can directly support the areas you are most passionate about. It embraces the spirit of experiential education, participation and adventure, which are the hallmarks of a University of New Haven education. 

Your gift sustains and enriches the high-quality teaching and learning environment we strive to provide for students and faculty at the University of New Haven. Whether you are a first-time supporter or a lifelong contributor, we appreciate your support!

Interested in starting a crowdfunding campaign of your own? 

Projects should be specific, meaningful, and time-sensitive. Additionally, University of New Haven Crowdfunding projects need to be supported by an active, engaged project team. Individuals are not permitted to have their own page. If this sounds like your group, please click here to apply.
