PitchFunderâ„¢ All-Access

Fundraising isn’t easy, but we help make crowdfunding simple. Our program is powered by the USEED platform, and includes assistance from student Crowdfunding Account Managers, overseen by professional staff within the ASU Foundation’s Office of Annual Giving.

Dedicated Account Managers to guide your team to success.

Access to a proven platform for crafting your campaign and reaching out to your network.

Non-profit professionals to handle all tax-related gift receipting.

Training in the best techniques to tell your story and inviting others to get involved.

On average, a PitchFunder campaign is live for 30 days, raising $4200 from around 45 donors, and is powered by a fundraising team of 15 people.

Although a campaign is “live” for 30 days, it requires a 3 months of commitment from start to finish—application to fund disbursement; and, requires you to work with ASU faculty and/ or staff to create the accounts necessary to fundraise through the ASU Foundation.

Ninety-five percent of all funds your campaign raises will be designated directly to your account, even if you don’t reach your goal. The remaining 5 percent goes to a general fund in support of ASU. There are no additional program costs or fees.

Because the ASU Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, donations made through our platform may qualify as charitable contributions. We take care of all the gift receipting for your donors and all related paperwork required.
