The CauseEDU Advantage


Enrollment Verification

Students on our site are required to submit enrollment verification or an acceptance letter to a college before their campaign goes live.

Direct Payments To Colleges

Students can select to have their fundraising dollars go directly to their school, assuring donors the money will be spent on education.

Recurring Donations

Donors can set up monthly donations to students, an option not offered on other crowdfunding platforms.

CauseEDU Crowdfunding: How It Works

Three Simple Steps To Creating A Crowdfunding Campaign:


Create An Account

The first step is to create an account. If you’re raising money for a school you currently attend, use your school email address for fastest approval.


Start A Campaign

Once you’ve created an account, create your crowdfunding campaign. Read “Start a Campaign” for tips on how to set it up.


Publicize It!

Post the link to your campaign on social media platforms and send to friends and family. Also, check out our blog posts, webinars and newsletters.

A better way to predict the cost of college

42% of college students don’t graduate in 6 years, and 2/3 of these students drop out for financial reasons. That’s almost 1/3 of students entering college who will not graduate solely because of funding. At CauseEDU, we do more than student crowdfunding; we help families develop sound strategies to better predict and cover their student’s college expenses – whether it’s a technical or trade school, college or university, certificate programs, study abroad, or any other educational program, we’re here to help you reach your college funding goals.
