About You Fund

At the University of Wyoming, we are taking advantage of this new platform not only to raise money for some amazing programs and areas but also to keep donors, friends, and alumni informed with what’s going on at UW.

“Crowdfunding is an innovative way to address opportunities that exist around campus but that don’t lend themselves to traditional fundraising methods,” says John Small, senior associate vice president for development, UW Foundation. “Because of this, really great activities on campus find support they wouldn’t have otherwise.”

UW’s crowdfunding page, You Fund, is powered by Community Funded.  They are located in Colorado, and their vision is to empower, connect, and support humanity.  They want to help communities by connecting them to the world so that they can find the financial support to achieve their dreams.

You Fund it,” says Candy Paradis, director of Annual Giving, UW Foundation. “That’s what this crowdfunding program is about. It allows donors to give to something they really care about.”

Unlike other crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter or Indiegogo, Community Funded focuses on higher education, healthcare, and other nonprofit fundraising organizations.  As their website says, “Community Funded is simply technology + thought-leadership provided by passionate people that want to do meaningful things. We built our business on the principle of having real impact in our communities, giving people everywhere a place to share their ideas and access needed resources. We are creating a world where ‘anything is possible’—and everything we design is based on that goal.”
