When are Maryville Crowdfund applications due?

Applications for projects are recommended to be submitted at least six weeks prior to the projects launch date.

How do groups access the funds they raise?

All projects will keep any funds that are raised regardless of whether or not the goal was achieved. Funds will only be deposited in the specific fund accounts per project. This will be coordinated within the Development and Alumni Relations office.

Who decides that a project will be added to Maryville Crowdfund?

A Maryville Crowdfunding panel, comprised of Development and Alumni Relations and Integrated Marketing and Communications staff, will review applications and approve them based on project essentials: team commitment, project appeal and goal achievement potential. The projects will also be further reviewed by the vice president for Development and Alumni Relations as well as any deans or program vice presidents/directors.
