Flyer Funder


Flyer Funder — Crowdfunding for UD!

Flyer Funder is the official crowdfunding platform of the University of Dayton. Crowdfunding offers a new opportunity for Flyer Nation to provide support to the colleges, units, programs and projects at UD that are most important to them. Potential crowdfunding ideas include fundraising for innovative projects, service trips, events, research and other UD-specific ventures. 

If you're a student or member of UD's faculty or staff, you can propose a project and raise funds for it! Projects that have been funded by Flyer Funder include service trips like UDSAP, events such as Christmas on Campus and experiential-learning opportunities like the UD Mars Rover Competition Team.

Every dollar committed to Flyer Funder goes to support the project — there are no fees or deductions. And all Flyer Funder projects must support the University and cannot pass through to an external charity or third party.

Flyer Funder Success

Flyer Funder has channeled donor support to 41 projects and raised $153,700 from 1,550 donors since its inception in 2017. Here are just a couple of examples of the impact donors like you have made.

Project application deadlines and helpful timeline.

Spring 2022 timeline:

  • Projects live for fundraising: March 10 - April 6, 2022 (Includes UD's giving day — One Day, One Dayton!)
  • Funds raised available for use: 30-45 days after project completion

Have an idea that doesn't meet the fall or spring timeline?

You can apply at any time, and we will consider ideas for projects outside of our fall and spring timelines on a case-by-case basis. The most efficient way to see if your project can proceed outside of our fall and spring sessions is to contact us at so we can discuss your goals and timeline to see if an exception can be made.
