University Advancement

1. What is GatorRaiser?

GatorRaiser is the official University of Houston-Downtown crowdfunding platform. UHD created GatorRaiser to empower faculty, staff, and students to approach fundraising through personal and direct grassroots efforts.

2. Why GatorRaiser?

GatorRaiser creates a more intimate and personal experience for the project creators and supporters of UHD. It also provides the University with a new and unique way to communicate the impact of gifts to UHD.

Great things are happening at UHD, and with your support we can continue to excel. Our students, faculty, and staff are leading the way in community engagement and involvement. One of the best things about GatorRaiser is that our project creators get to tell you about their projects in their own words. They create the videos, write the descriptions, and share the updates.

3. How do I make a gift?

Donors can support one project or several projects. Your gift will support funds held by UHD. All gifts to UHD projects are directed to the fund indicated on the online giving form. One hundred percent of your gift will benefit the program you support. In the event that a project doesn't quite reach their goal, they will still receive all of the funds donated to go towards their project. After making your gift, spread the word and share your support via social media!

Please consult your tax adviser to determine the tax-deductibility of your gift. At this time, GatorRaiser is equipped to process gifts only from domestic donors.
