Submit a Project Idea!

Welcome to the Application for a VikingFunder Campaign and Page! 

VikingFunder is a crowdfunding site managed by the WWU annual giving team to allow students, faculty, staff, or alumni to propose and accomplish a crowdfunding fundraiser related to needs of current and future Western Washington University students. 

While 100% of the money raised on the VikingFunder platform goes to the projects, gifts made on the platform are treated as gifts to Western Washington University Foundation. 

They are tax-deductible under the Western Foundation’s 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. Gifts go through Western’s online giving, gift processing, receipting, and recording protocols. Therefore, use of the platform is restricted to projects that meet the following eligibility criteria:

1) Projects must have a Western advisor (faculty member, staff member, or officially-recognized student organization).

2) Funds raised must be used under the supervision of the Western advisor. (This means that campaigns raising money that will be passed along to other non-profits are *not* eligible to use the Western crowdfunding platform.) 

3) Academic campaigns may need approval from a director of development. 

Campaigns not meeting any of the above mentioned criteria will not be eligible. Meeting these main criteria does not guarantee a crowdfunding campaign will be approved.

Please review the VikingFunder Guidelines here before submitting your application. (Note: You'll need to be logged into your WWU account to view the document.)

Thank you for submitting your application! We’re excited to learn more about your project and create a fundraising plan that will ensure your success!

Is your project tied to a specific event? Is it time sensitive?
