Guidelines for Crowdfunding

Eligible Projects

 Before submitting your project for consideration, please be sure you can meet the following guidelines: 

  • Your project and/or fundraising effort is affiliated with Millersville University 
  • Approval from individual/organization’s division head/director (i.e. Vice President, Dean, Advisor) 
  • An established University fund to which gifts can be directed. Note: an SSI account is not considered a University account 
  • If you do not have an account, the Development Office can set one up for you.
  • A dedicated project leader(s) who will spearhead project initiatives and promote the project throughout the entire campaign duration – in all, campaigns will run about 3 months from start to finish 
  • A realistic, defined, and measurable fundraising goal – suggested campaigns should fall between $1,000 - $10,000.  Projects that fall outside those parameters require additional discussion 
  • A specific, concise project description 
  • Projects should be: 
    • Specific – be clear about what you're trying to fund 
    • Attainable – make sure you can complete your project once you reach your goal 
    • Realistic – your goal should be in-line with the size of your donor base 
    • Time-bound – why is it important to make a donation right now? 
  • A thought-out timeframe – campaigns will remain active on the site for up to 60 days 
  • A thought-out marketing and outreach strategy – who will be your target audience?
