What do we do?

GiveCampus is the leading social fundraising and engagement platform for educational institutions. It blends crowdfunding, peer-to-peer fundraising, and social networking to help colleges, universities, and K-12 schools raise more money, from more people, at a fraction of the cost of traditional fundraising methods. We're based in San Francisco and Washington, DC.

Why join us?

GiveCampus is revolutionizing the way that schools raise money and engage their constituents. Our mission is to ensure that schools have the resources they need to deliver the highest-quality education possible, and that education is affordable and accessible to everyone. We’re backed by some of the world’s top investors, including Y Combinator, and we’ve achieved 5X growth over the last six months. 2-3 new schools join our network every week, and we’re expanding our team to support their efforts and continue innovating.
