How it works

Use FundOne to present your project to potential donors and illustrate how their support will make a difference. Post your project, invite your donors to give, and watch your ideas take flight!

What You Need to Know

  • FundOne is not a grant program; it does not disburse an existing envelope of funds. FundOne is a crowdfunding tool you can use to solicit private donations from your supporters.
  • To qualify for FundOne, projects must “live” at Concordia; they must be related to teaching, learning or research. This may include extracurricular student groups but excludes support for external charities or causes. Contact us at if you're not sure whether your project qualifies.
  • Charitable donations are not the same as corporate sponsorships. When someone donates through FundOne, they receive a charitable donation receipt recognized by the Canada Revenue Agency, and their donation information — including name, amount and date — is kept confidential. If you plan to include sponsorship levels in your fundraising plan, let us know so we can help you implement recognition appropriately.


  • Projects must be based at Concordia, under the auspices of a university administrative or academic unit.
  • A Concordia employee who has the knowledge and authority to spend university funds must be involved in your project.
  • Projects must be associated with an account in Concordia's Financial Services system that can accept donations. (If your project does not have an account, one may be created in some circumstances.)

The Process

1. You submit your application, including messaging and images for your page.

2. We review your submission, and contact you to arrange a meeting.

3. You meet with a Concordia fundraiser to discuss your plan.

4. We create the fundraising page and show it to you for your review and edits.

5. Once your page is live, you promote your project to future funders.

6. You thank your donors as your campaign progresses.
