Fordham students, faculty, staff, and alumni who wish to use crowdfunding as a means of supporting their Fordham-related projects should use the University's crowdfunding platform. This will ensure that the project is branded with the University’s name and collateral, that gifts to the projects are tax deductible, and that Fordham is equipped to recognize and steward those donors.
This will also ensure that no tax liability accrues to an individual as a result of receiving the funds personally through an external crowdfunding site. The funds will go directly into a University gift fund designated for the project’s use and gifts will be properly receipted to the donors.
Fianlly, 100% of each and every donation made through GiveCampus is directed towards the project! In contrast, other popular, non-Fordham crowdfunding sites typically charge a fee and do not provide full gift support.
