Back projects headed by UCalgary researchers, faculty, students and alumni through our crowdfunding initiative

Creating the future we dream of together

UCrowdfund is the university’s crowdfunding platform for projects initiated by UCalgary faculty, researchers, students and alumni.

When you support a UCrowdfund campaign, 100 per cent of your gift goes to the project — versus some crowdfunding platforms that take an administration fee — and you receive a tax receipt for your donation. If a project goal isn’t met, the team will still receive all of the funds donated to go towards their project.

After making your gift, spread the word and share your support on social media and throughout your networks. The more people that know about a project, the higher the chance it will reach its fundraising goal.

COVID-19 Student Relief

COVID-19 abruptly forced students into new academic and financial realities. The impact was immediate and significant, especially for those already facing higher levels of debt, food insecurity and mental health concerns. Your support will help students disproportionately affected by COVID-19, allowing them to focus on their academic goals during this challenging time.
