Have a bright idea? How about a team to make it happen and a crowd ready to support your cause?

FundRAZOR, the official crowdfunding platform at the University of Arkansas, is designed to help faculty, staff and students raise money for innovative ideas and important initiatives on campus. Projects are created and promoted by U of A groups to fund everything from student scholarships and cutting-edge research to service trips and once-in-a-lifetime academic experiences.

This application will evaluate your project’s suitability for a 30-day crowdfunding campaign. Applications must be submitted at least 9 weeks before the desired start date of your 30-day campaign to allow ample time for approval, team training and content development.
