Triple Crown Challenge

The Division of Institutional Advancement is challenging all Alumni and friends of Fayetteville State University to give back!

About the Challenge

We need your help to reach our goal of $50,000. FSU's Board of Trustees is sponsoring a crowdfunding campaign and every academic department can receive unrestricted funding. Departments also have the chance to win a $1,200 student scholarship or a $500 bookstore certificate for a deserving student. The sky is the limit with how much you can raise, but time is limited. The campaign only runs through March 23rd.   

What can you do?

Give - no matter the amount, choose your team and give!

Become a Fundraiser - you can set your own goal and join a team.

Spread the Word - share the message with your friends on social media. #BroncosGiveBack


What is Crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a fundraising strategy used by nonprofit organizations to rally an army of fundraisers around a cause. In 2008, this idea to raise money through personal social networks of individuals was born. It rose to prominence through platforms like Kick Starter and GoFundMe. Crowdfunding is exactly what it sounds like-it is raising money from a crowd of people who you may or may not know.
