Going to college is an exciting time for students to explore a new world in academics and life in general. As wonderful as it may be, college does come with a hefty price tag. Expenses can range anywhere from tuition and travel, to living expenses, computers and textbooks.
Create a fundraising site with Deposit a Gift to let friends and family get involved with supporting your dream of graduating from college. You can set it up at any point in the process (even plan ahead and start at birth!) and use it as an ongoing place for people to contribute at any time, or in honor of special occasions like birthdays, holidays and graduation.

With Deposit a Gift you can customize your fundraising site in the most creative way possible so that it’s truly a reflection of you and what you are trying to accomplish. You can set it up in the format of a fund or use our Gift List tool to break down the different uses of funds so that your supporters can contribute to different areas of need.
Once you’ve got your site setup to reflect your educational goals, the key is marketing it to the max to generate excitement and get people on board. They can’t contribute if they don’t know about it, so be sure to find ways to stay top of mind, because there is nothing more than getting you the education you deserve!
