How does it work?
Simply create a fundraiser page in seconds, invite your group to participate and then shop popular brands’ websites through your Campus Causes page. You can even earn cash bonuses through our special perks programs we run at different times during the school year! Shop for yourself and spread the word to family and friends. Every time they shop our popular brand partners through your Campus Causes page, you earn more for your cause. Members can also donate directly to your cause via our Donate Now feature.
How much does it cost to use Campus Causes?
There are no fees to create a page or withdraw funds raised. We make money when our brand partners pay us a small fee whenever you shop. The only time we charge a fee is to supporters who wish to donate instead of shop - the donor will pay a 6% processing fee. There are no other costs.
Who can fundraise?
Campus Causes was designed to help college students fundraise for the causes that are important to them.

Once you submit your payment information you can withdraw funds anytime, as long as there is over $100 outstanding. You will receive payment within 5 business days of your request if you want an electronic check sent by email or 10 business days if you wish to receive a traditional check sent by postage.

Made a purchase but don't see the cash back?
It can take up to 48 hours for our brand partners to notify us before we credit your Fundraiser. Grocery purchases take a bit longer as we don't get notified until after your order is delivered. Hotels and travel purchases are only credited upon completion of your trip, not at time of booking. We'll always send you an email when cash back has been applied to your fundraiser! If it's past 48 hours and you still haven't been notified, forward us your shopping email receipt to [email protected] and we'll credit your account immediately! Also, make sure any ad-blocker software is turned off!
Who owns Campus Causes and why did you start it?
Campus Causes is owned by Newbridge Marketing Group. We’ve run college marketing programs since our founding in 2004 and saw that campus groups could raise more money, more efficiently, if they had a better fundraising tool. We also know a lot of brands who want to support good causes and are happy to share their revenue with student groups as a gesture of gratitude for their business. We are inspired by the good work of student fundraising campaigns and are thrilled to now be able to amplify their impact. Learn more about us here.
