Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) - an initiative of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation - brings college and university students together to turn ideas into action on local and global challenges.
In the 4th annual CGI U Commitments Challenge, student teams square off to fund their social innovation, enterprise, and sustainability commitments. Similar to the NCAA "March Madness" tournament, the 16 student teams who raise most money in the first round will compete in a head-to-head “bracket” to crowd-fund for their CGI U Commitments to Action. The winner will be announced by President Bill Clinton on March 22 at CGI U 2014 in Phoenix, Arizona.
Every student has an individual fundraising page, and all of the student teams will be participating in CGI U 2014 meeting.
Regardless of who the final winner is, every student team will keep the funds that they raise for their commitments on CrowdRise. All funds will go directly to the individual students and are not donations to CGI U or the Clinton Foundation. The individual donation limit is $100.
