Philanthropic Crowdfunding from KDG Helping Schools Boost Engagement

Posted Jul 10, 2019

As a new school year nears, colleges and universities across the nation are looking for new ways to engage alumni and students. KDG’s philanthropic crowdfunding is one way to achieve this. 

Custom higher ed crowdfunding campaigns from KDG have engaged alumni and students from all over the world. They’ve helped schools break giving records and have even won several national and international awards, including a platinum prize in fundraising from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.

Schools work closely with KDG’s developers and UI/UX experts to put together a 24-hour interactive experience that uses school themes, games, and competition between alumni to raise a record number of donations. Drexel University, Baker University, Muhlenberg College, and Florida Institute of Technology are just a few of the schools that have built crowdfunding campaigns with KDG. 

“These campaigns are more than just a giving page with a form,” explains Kalyn Kates, lead UI/UX designer at KDG. “They feature custom designs, videos, games, and hidden prizes that keep donors coming back throughout the day.”

KDG also offers round-the-clock support on the day of the campaign to ensure everything runs smoothly.
