UCrowdfund

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.

The Geopolitics of Pride: Supporting LGBTI newcomers

The Geopolitics of Pride: Supporting LGBTI newcomers

UCalgary researchers, in collaboration with the Centre for Newcomers, are working to develop stronger supports for LGBTI refugees who have fled persecution in their home country, only to encounter new challenges in Canada, from isolation to lack of access to healthcare, language classes, and other basic services.  With your support, researchers aim to overhaul policy and practice, improving front-line refugee services in Calgary and across Canada.

19 to Zero Vaccine Hesitancy: Convincing Canadians About the Importance of Vaccines

We are asking for your support to help us continue our research in vaccine hesitancy and create targeted behavioural change campaigns to build vaccine confidence and finally end the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada. Our project is seeking to reach populations across Canada, who need to hear about the vital role they play in building community immunity.
