What is Crowdfunding?

A panel workshop with students, alumni, and faculty

Whitman students, alumni and administrators are using social media-based campaigns to raise funds to make their dreams into reality! Come hear three compelling stories about some of the most popular crowdfunding platforms out there, from three Whitties who are using them today:

  • Meghan White '14, is using Youcaring.com to raise funds to play for the USA Division 3 Basketball Team Brazil Tour this summer.
  • Sarah Koenigsberg '02, Owner Tensegrity Productions, is using Kickstarter.com  to raise funds to produce a film she is creating.
  • Kendra Golden, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Associate Professor of Biology, is using GoFundMe.com and Booster.com to raise funds for the Dance Center in Walla Walla
