Innovators Welcome


For Your Institution

USEED is the crowdfunding platform developed specifically for higher education.

Crowdfunding has become the number one source of online donations for non-profits. Crowdfunding campaigns raised $1.5 billion in 2011, $2.6 billion in 2012, and Gartner Research forecasts they will have raised $6.2 billion in 2013. USEED brings the potential of crowdfunding to higher education.

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.

For Your Community

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.

The USEED Platform

Our innovative technology will transform your annual giving efforts.

Drawing from industry best practices and our prototype with the University of Delaware, USEED invested a year in building our crowdfunding platform from the ground-up around the specific needs of higher education advancement.

Our platform features seamless back-end integration, full oversight through an administrative dashboard, complete visibility of platform activity, comprehensive metrics and reporting, custom branding options and government-level security.

We are conducting pilots with Cornell University, Arizona State University (ASU) and the University of Virginia in Spring 2013 and signing on launch partners for Fall 2013.
