ABOUT CROWDFUNDING

Mercyhurst University is thrilled to offer our fourth round of crowdfunding projects in the spring of 2020. A crowdfunding project is exactly as it is described – a project that comes to life via funding from a ‘crowd’ of donors. The Office of University Advancement works closely with the Mercyhurst community to solicit, evaluate, and select projects that will help provide a better campus experience for our students. We encourage you take a few minutes and look through each project – even if you came here to support one specific initiative, you might find another that sound just as interesting! If you have any general questions about the projects, or have trouble using our site, please contact Ryan Palm ’07, associate vice president for advancement, at rpalm@mercyhurst.edu or (814) 824-3320.
