PAWprint: Philanthropy At Work - The crowdfunding program for UNI
The University of Northern Iowa Advancement Division has launched a program to enable students and members of the faculty and staff to unleash the power of crowdfunding on campus. This program, PAWprint, provides student organizations and members of the faculty and staff with the training, tools and support needed to put on a successful fundraising campaign.
- PAWprint will train and coach student organizations and members of the faculty and staff to raise money by reaching out to their personal networks — friends, family, colleagues and other contacts — to create a crowd and invite them to get involved by making a contribution.
- A PAWprint campaign is “live” for 30 days, but requires about 3 months of commitment from start to finish.
- 80% of donors who contribute to crowdfunding projects are new donors to the university.
The UNI Women's Basketball team raised over $10,000 during its 30-day crowdfunding campaign. The funds went towards completing their locker and team rooms inside the McLeod Center. READ MORE
