Oberlin’s crowdfunding platform connects students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends interested in supporting specific projects to help raise them to success.

This is more than a way to raise money; it’s a way to become an engaged part of the Oberlin community. It provides a space to network and share some of the many Oberlin stories about academic research, community outreach, entrepreneurship, and student projects.
