BOULDER, Colo. - The University of Colorado is turning to crowdfunding to raise money for eight unique projects on the Boulder campus.
The Daily Camera reports CU is expected to announce the crowdfunding campaigns for projects ranging from undergraduate research to departmental programs in the next two weeks. University officials hope enough people will give gifts in small increments to fully fund the projects.
Crowdfunding, which has become increasingly popular, provides online platforms for people to explain their projects and how much money they need to raise. Organizers hope to fund interesting and unique projects on the campus while also giving alumni, students and others a deeper sense of engagement with the school.
