BOWLING GREEN, Ky, (WBKO) - Western Kentucky University has launched a new crowdfunding site called SpiritFunder.
They've started with three projects: The Hardcastle Adopt a Class Scholarship Fund, Big Red Needs a New Suit, and the WKU Storm Chase Experience.
Those with WKU say these are examples of great things happening across campus that people may not always know about as Jenny Pyle explains:
"It is the next way for people to show their WKU spirit and operates on the premise that everybody can make a contribution of any size that adds up to a big impact."
Contributions are tax deductible and each of the projects gets to keep the money raised.
