better way of crowdfunding for education

42% of college students don’t graduate in 6 years, and 2/3 of these students drop out for financial reasons. That’s almost 1/3 of students entering college who will not graduate solely because of funding.  At CauseEDU, we help students raise the money they need for school – whether it’s a technical or trade school, college or university, certificate programs, study abroad, or any other educational program, we’re here to help you find the money you need to reach the finish line.
