|Bill Calhoun, President of the UNI Foundation, gave the first two gifts to the UNI Foundation's crowdfunding program, PAWprint.|
The University of Northern Iowa Foundation launched its crowdfunding program, PAWprint, on Wednesday, August 27.
PAWprint is designed to empower the student organization community to raise funds for the projects and events they're passionate about. The program will provide groups with the training, tools, and technology necessary to raise charitable funds in partnership with the UNI Advancement Division.
Campaigns will be "live" for 30 days, and the success of projects is dependent on the social capital of the student groups. There are no costs or fees to launch a campaign, and all funds a campaign raises are designated directly to the organization's account.
The platform’s lead projects are the Panther Marching Band’s trip to London and University of Northern Iowa Veterans’ Association. Get more information about PAWprint at uni-foundation.org/pawprint.
