USEED is the crowdfunding platform developed specifically for higher education.
Crowdfunding raised $1.5 billion in 2011, $2.6 billion in 2012, and MassSolutions estimates it raised over $5.1 billion in 2013. At this rate of growth, crowdfunding could become a significant channel of online giving for all universities, colleges and community colleges.
Leveraging social networks and powerful storytelling, USEED empowers your most compelling advocates — your students, faculty and alumni — to help you win new donors, increase participation, boost alumni engagement, and build your donor pipeline.
Your institution's advancement office has full control and visibility over the USEED crowdfunding process, and the campaigns link directly to your existing donor database and gift processing systems. USEED was created expressly for colleges and universities.
USEED enables your students, alumni, and faculty to raise support
for the educational initiatives they care about most.
USEED empowers your campus community to share stories about the projects they're passionate about. They create and support fundraising campaigns that extend the opportunity to take part in unique and worthwhile experiences and change the world.
Your students develop entrepreneurial skills as they use USEED to create their own transformative educational opportunities. They also forge new relationships and improve career prospects by communicating with alumni and friends around common interests and identities.
Your alumni engage with your institution in a meaningful way as they connect with the particular students and causes that resonate with them. They hear authentic stories about exciting initiatives on and off campus, and they want to be a part of creating that success.
