Ramfunder FAQ

Crowdfunding answers

1. Where does my gift go?

All gifts to Colorado State University projects are directed to the fund indicated on the online giving form. Your gift will support funds at CSU held by the CSU Foundation, a 501(c)(3). Please consult your tax adviser to determine the tax-deductibility of your gift.

2. Can you tell me more about the project goals?

Project goals are set by the project creators and the Office of Annual Giving. In the event that a project doesn’t quite reach its goal, the project creators will still receive the funds that were raised to go towards their project. The same goes for groups that exceed their fundraising goals, with contributions helping project stretch goals.

3. How can I fundraise my project through Ramfunder?

CSU-sponsored programs and registered student organizations are eligible to utilize Ramfunder. No individual may benefit from the funds raised by Ramfunder. If you meet these first qualifications, simply fill out the form below, and a fundraising representative from your college or unit will be in touch with you in 1-3 business days.

If you have already been given the green light by your fundraising representative and received the special survey link from them, check out the resources page for specific instructions on setting up your project!
