The CauseEDU Advantage
WHAT SETS US APART FROM OTHER STUDENT FUNDING PLATFORMS?
EASIER TO GIVE MONEY
With both one-time and recurring donations, a direct pay (to school) option, and required enrollment verification, our crowdfunding platform makes it easier for donors to give.
EASIER TO RAISE MONEY
Students receive tips and tools to grow and maintain the donor relationship.
Our financial literacy platform helps students and their families understand the true cost of college and how to pay for it.
A 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.Read More
How It Works
Three Simple Steps To Creating A Crowdfunding Campaign:
Create An Account
The first step is to create an account. If you’re raising money for a school you currently attend, use your school email address for fastest approval.
Start A Campaign
Once you’ve created an account, create your crowdfunding campaign. Read “Start a Campaign” for tips on how to set it up.
Post the link to your campaign on social media platforms and send to friends and family. Also, check out our blog posts, webinars and newsletters.
Understanding The True Cost of College
College is expensive, but many times students and their families don’t understand the true costs until it’s too late. A college’s “Cost of Attendance” doesn’t tell the whole story of what you should expect to pay for your education. We can help you with a customized plan that will better predict your funding needs.
Pick A Plan
CauseEDU offers three plans that help students and their families better understand the true cost of college and how to pay for it. Our plans include the True Cost Calculator, Financial Aid Negotiatior, Scholarship Tracker, and Student Budget. We also provide one-on-one consultations for families.LEARN MORE
