CRUMB RAISE

Give Today


Are you ready to start Crumbraising?

We're excited to announce a new fundraising platform called Crumb that makes supporting your favorite athletic program simple and fun. You will receive an email invitation from us to join Crumb in the coming weeks, but we're providing a quick preview here.



How it Works

Crumb enables you to donate your spare change from everyday purchases. When you buy your morning coffee, shop for groceries, or dine out, Crumb rounds up your purchase to the next dollar and donates that remainder amount to NIU Athletics.

Setup Process

Crumb enables you to donate your spare change from everyday purchases. When you buy your morning coffee, shop for groceries, or dine out, Crumb rounds up your purchase to the next dollar and donates that remainder amount to NIU Athletics.

  • We’ll send you an invitation link via email.
  • When you join, you can connect a bank account and link a checking account, debit card, or supported credit card and invite family & friends to do the same.
  • Crumb then rounds up your daily purchases to the next dollar and donates those remainder amounts – called “crumbs” – to NIU Athletics.

It's that simple!

Frequently Asked Questions


Is my bank account information secure?

Absolutely. We do not store any bank account credentials or information on our platform. We authenticate directly with banks via secure, trusted third-party infrastructure providers including Plaid and Stripe.


I’m on a budget. Can I cap the amount of Crumbs I donate?

Yes, when you set up your donation source (checking account, etc.), you will be presented the option to set a monthly cap (i.e., $15) on your total Crumb donations.


I don’t want to donate Crumbs. Can I donate another way?

Yes. You can make one-time donations or set-up fixed monthly donations via credit card from your donor dashboard.
