Student Organization Funding Sources

Fundraising and Donations

If you are interested in reaching out to friends, family, alumni, and others to solicit donations for your organization, or a specific project your organization has taken on, consider partnering with the Office of Annual Giving for a new project page or for participating in #MoveInMiami.

Project Page

Raise funds for your student organization with ease! Contact the Office of Annual Giving to meet and have a fundraising project page specific to your group created, which will help your org reach its goals. Benefits of having a project page include (but not limited to):

  • 100% of funds raised will go to your organization, unlike most crowdfunding pages
  • Your organization does not have to pay credit card fees
  • Your organization receives a personalized URL for its specific project page
  • All donations made through the page are tax-deductible gifts (your donors will appreciate it!)
  • Your organization will be raising funds in accordance to the Student Handbook. 


#MoveInMiami is Miami University's annual day of giving, which takes place during first-year move in. 

Last year during #MoveInMiami, over 300 areas within the university, including a significant number of student organizations, raised over $1,000,000 in 20 hours and 20 minutes.

Your organization can also be a part of this momentous day, by having a project page created, so that it may be featured on the #MoveInMiami website. During #MoveInMiami, your student organization's project page can be used to raise general funds for your org or a specific project (recommended by the Office of Annual Giving).

Card Readers and eMarket

Credit Card and MULAA Readers

Student organizations can borrow a credit card reader and/or a MUlaa reader from the Center for Student Engagement, Activities, and Leadership to use during on campus sales and other money collection events. Use the links to reserve either a credit card reader or MUlaa reader.

Credit Card Reader

MULAA Reader

Card readers are for use at on-campus events such as bake sales, dues collection, t-shirt sales, study guides, etc. They can not be used for alcohol-related fundraisers.


Student organizations can set up a customized payment webpage on Miami's Nelnet platform for collecting funds for dues, fees, registrations, and sales of goods/services.

Our office highly encourages organizations to use Miami’s eMarket as the portal will allow your group to establish a permanent payment platform to be used for all future events. You can request an eMarket site by emailing the Bursar office at

Just keep in mind that eMarkets cannot be used to collect gifts, which the Office of University Advancement will be happy to assist with should you wish to create a giving page. Learn more about fundraising and donations.

For questions relating to credit card and MUlaa readers please contact Elissa Christmas,
