Catalyzer, Northwestern’s crowdfunding platform managed by Alumni Relations and Development, enables registered students groups to raise money for projects that make an impact—socially, culturally, and globally. Through Catalyzer, student groups have raised money to launch new programming, bring in dynamic speakers, facilitate workshops, and more. Catalyzer projects benefit the broader Northwestern community, further the mission of the University, and include an educational component. Student groups can apply to participate in a fall, #CATSGiveBack, winter, or spring Catalyzer project cycle. Learn more by visiting the Catalyzer webpage or emailing
