About Us

We started by building the largest educational based crowdfunding platform in the U.S. We are now shaping Higher Education’s Digital Fundraising Landscape.

Shaping the digital fundraising & alumni engagement landscape

Snap Advance’s all-in-one platform was born through the creation of Snap! Raise, the largest educational based crowdfunding platform in the United States. While visiting a high school football coach in Northern California, the founding members of Snap! Advance were asked to reach out to the coach’s alma mater, Stanford University. The founders followed this advice, leading to a partnership that created the foundation of the Snap! Advance platform. We’ve since raised millions of dollars for our clients ranging from Community Colleges and small nonprofits to larger institutions like Notre Dame.

Our team includes industry experts who have helped groups of all sizes achieve their fundraising goals.

Our consultative approach and how we collaborate with each client in understanding their fundraising goals has set us apart from our competitors. Our fastest growing client base are institutions that are coming from platforms that lack the integration capabilities that allow for better, quicker data-driven decision making. Snap! Advance consistently creates innovative functionality to tap into and leverage emerging technology, such as social networks, mobile device technology, video and audio technology, and third-party applications that particular departments may want to leverage. Once these services are deployed into the system, they are immediately available to all clients.
