Crowdfunding is a fundraising tool designed to fund a project or venture through raising small amounts of money from a large number of people online. Crowdfunding is driven through personal connections and outreach. BGSU has their own crowdfunding platform called Falcon Funded.
Falcon Funded is used in a variety of capacities, including, but not limited to, funding for research projects, scholarships, specialized equipment, service projects, student organization trips, athletic department projects and more.
Any of BGSU’s colleges, departments, divisions, student groups and faculty are eligible to apply for a Falcon Funded project. All projects are considered on an individual basis by the Falcon Funded Review Committee and must be aligned with University priorities as detailed in BGSU's strategic plan.
