The University of Oregon Foundation announced the launch of a new giving platform last week, to continue its support of UO’s initiatives.
The new platform is built on top of technology from ScaleFunder, a crowdfunding tech provider focusing on nonprofit, university and technology funding. It launches with the much-anticipated Pathway Match project, benefitting the PathwayOregon Scholarship. In a collaborative effort with the Athletics department, the coaches of the University of Oregon football program will match every dollar up to $250,000 to support native Oregonians and their academic dreams to be a Duck.
The University of Oregon Foundation and UO Athletics program came to ScaleFunder with urgency to support this incredible program and all were able to quickly collaborate to launch the website in under two weeks. The University of Oregon Foundation and ScaleFunder are looking forward to many more successes together as students, alumni, staff, faculty, and friends engage with UO in a new, dynamic medium.
ScaleFunder is a digital fundraising platform for higher education. Founded by development directors and technologists in higher education to harness the power of crowdfunding, the ScaleFunder platform unites empowered volunteers with on-campus development administrators to showcase the unique philanthropic efforts of individual institutions. ScaleFunder provides a customizable platform that puts branding first and integrates with payment systems to provide the donor a seamless engagement experience with the institution.
ScaleFunder is a division of Ruffalo Noel Levitz, the leader in strategic fundraising, enrollment management services, and software. The partnership drives a strong approach to multi-channel fundraising, supporting the wide range of needs within higher education and the non-profit sector.
Students engineering access to clean drinking water, professors performing life-changing research, athletic teams engaging fans to support a growing program – these are just a few of the dreams that have been achieved due to the funding received using crowdfunding and digital engagement through ScaleFunder.
