Submit a Project Idea!

Virginia Tech Crowdfunding Application

Jump is a way for the university community to raise money so that their ideas and passions can take flight. Crowdfunding offers our donors a new avenue to provide support directly to projects at the university that are most meaningful to them. It helps in supporting a growing culture of philanthropy while aiding students, student-athletes, faculty, staff, and university programs raise money for research, events, outreach efforts, scholarships, and more.

Fall crowdfunding projects will be October-November, and spring crowdfunding projects will be March-April. Summer projects and projects outside these windows will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
