Refer a Friend

Fundraising Platforms | Crowdfunding & Student Organizations

Are you an active member of your on-campus community? Another option we always recommend is looking to student organizations and outside sources of fundraising. Students use platforms such as GoFundMe, Indiegogo, and others, to create social sharing campaigns highlighting projects you’re passionate about becoming involved in but need some assistance to make it happen.

 

*Not sure how to start a crowdfunding campaign? The TGP Team can advise you on building out your campaign, provide Alumni crowdfunding examples, guide you on goal setting, and more! 
 

Military or Veteran Student 

Utilize the GI Bill to help you travel. As an accredited course veteran and military students have utilized the GI Bill to cover their program costs.
 

Internship or Job 

Students have been sponsored by their current jobs to attend the program. With the intention of coming back from experiential opportunities like TGP with a new sense of purpose, direction, and motivation, companies believe that students will come back more educated and a stronger asset to their internal team.
