Gardner-Webb Launches Webbgive, New Crowdfunding Platform

Crowdfunding has grown in popularity as a method of raising capital through the collective effort of friends, family and individual investors. Gardner-Webb University recently launched Webbgive, a crowdfunding platform to provide support for small-scale campus projects.

Webbgive allows GWU to provide campus constituents with year-round fundraising options for smaller projects, disaster relief efforts, and facility updates. For example, the women’s basketball team will soon be raising money for a much-needed locker room update through ScaleFunder.

One of the biggest benefits of Webbgive is its ability to centralize and streamline the University’s fundraising efforts for smaller projects, scholarships, and initiatives. Supporters believe the service will provide additional opportunities to share more about Gardner-Webb to larger audiences and bring awareness to projects that benefit a range of campus organizations.
