About

Welcome to the University of Central Oklahoma Foundation’s crowdfunding platform. Crowdfunding offers a new and innovative way to raise funds for certain projects across campus. It serves as an online tool to help students, faculty and staff display select projects and raise funds to turn their ambitious ideas into reality.

How can I apply for funding for my project?

Any UCO student/faculty/staff member may apply. Each project must have a full-time faculty or staff member who will ensure the successful completion of the project, if your group’s project is selected.

Make sure before you apply for your project that you have read and reviewed the crowdfunding policies and guidelines on www.centralconnection.org/crowdfunding. All projects must comply with the UCO Foundation’s Use of Fund policy.

What happens next if my project is selected?

The annual giving coordinator will review all projects submitted. We will then reach out to you to set up a meeting to go over your project in more detail before approval.
