Three crowdfunding efforts launch in the College of Arts and Humanities

graduating students

As Fresno State rolls out their crowdfunding platform, three areas in the College of Arts and Humanities look to raise funds for scholarships, student travel and preserving local history. The campaigns end on Oct. 31.

Student Musician Travel Fund

The Department of Music advances musical arts through education, community engagement, artistic creation and performance. With over 200 music majors, the fund will afford student musicians to travel to attend and/or participate in professional music conferences, performances, and/or workshops throughout the community and region. These experiences will in turn help students fine tuning their performance, pedagogy, and composition skills, and will forge their passion of music in the community.

The Fresno 15: Creative Writing Marathon

The Fresno 15 project will feature award-winning Fresno writers in a creative writing challenge and fundraiser to benefit the Larry Levis Creative Writing Memorial Scholarship. Volunteer authors run a “literary marathon,” writing 15 pieces in 15 days, while the rest of us “sponsor” and encourage them as they write.
