Start a campaign and use #GFMGeorgiaTech
Tuition, Books, Housing, Study Abroad – anything you need!
Announcing GoFundMe matching at Georgia Tech! Any Georgia Tech student that starts a GoFundMe campaign between 10/26 and 12/1 and raises at least $500 from 5+ donors will receive $100 in matching donations from GoFundMe.
Over the past several years, students, teachers, and parents are increasingly turning to GoFundMe to raise money for education expenses, including tuition. In fact, in the last two years, over $100 million has been raised on GoFundMe for education-related campaigns, making it the fastest growing category on the platform. With the average college graduate in 2016 facing $37,172 in student loan debt—up 6% from last year—the need for help with education costs in this country is clear.
How Do Campaigns Qualify?
Step 1: Create a new GoFundMe campaign using the hashtag #GFMGeorgiaTech in the campaign description between October 26 and December 1.
Step 2: Tell your story. Use photos, videos, and text to tell your community why your education is important to you, why you need to raise this money, and how GoFundMe will match their support with a $100 donation.
Step 3: Share the campaign on social media and raise at least $500 from 5+ unique donors.
Campaigns are eligible for the match if they are created by or for an undergraduate or graduate student at Georgia Tech. Eligible campaigns can be created by students, family members, friends, professors, or anyone who knows a student in need. Eligible campaigns must raise money from 5 unique donors.
