Can checks be mailed in if donors would not like to give online?
Checks can be mailed to 5244 N Jackson Ave, Fresno, CA 93740. Checks must be received prior to the projects closing date.
What happens if a project is overfunded?
If a campaign raises more than its stated funding goal, we will work with the project team to determine whether the surplus should be used to expand or enhance the project, or reserved for use by similar projects in the future.
What if the project I am supporting does not meet its funding goal?
If the campaign falls short of its funding goal, the funds raised will still be released to the project’s respective campus area. In the event that a project cannot be undertaken because of the shortfall, the money raised will be retained by the sponsoring college, school or program for use on a project with similar goals.
Is there a gift assessment associated with the donations my project receives?
To partially defray the costs of the Crowdfunding program there is a 5% assessment on the funds you raise. Please take into account this deduction before spending your funds.
