FrogFunding is TCU's exclusive crowdfunding platform. Here we've collected some of the University's most exciting projects in need of financial support. FrogFunding allows alumni, parents and friends of the university to support creative and innovative projects that particularly appeal to them.

Projects are submitted by TCU students, staff and faculty. TCU's division of University Advancement reviews all submissions for suitability, selecting projects based on their alignment with the University's strategic plan, "Vision in Action: Lead On" and the level of commitment demonstrated by project leadership.

Project donors will receive updates and can interact directly with the project leaders by leaving a comment on the project or sending them a message.

What is Crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is sponsorship by a crowd of many donors, each making an individual, small donation. FrogFunding provides a platform to showcase projects to a large audience and gives donors an easy way to provide financial support.

Campaign Timelines

TCU will run four crowdfunding campaigns during the 2019 - 2020 academic year:

  • September 3 - October 1
  • October 28 - November 21
  • February 5 - March 11
  • March 30 - May 1
  • Supporting a Project

    FrogFunding projects in need of support can be browsed here. All gifts made to support a FrogFunding project will be accepted by TCU and distributed to a gift fund corresponding with the campus unit sponsoring the project. TCU will provide official tax receipts to all FrogFunding donors.

    If a project is not fully funded within the allotted time frame, any funds raised will still be allocated to the project and be used to offset the cost of the promoted project.
