PLEASE NOTE, IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR PROJECT TO RUN OVER THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY PERIOD (20TH DEC 2018 UNTIL 3RD JAN 2019), YOU WILL NEED TO SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT BY NO LATER THAN 10TH DECEMBER 2018 FOR REVIEW.

ANY RECOMMENDED CHANGES WILL THEN NEED TO BE MADE BY 17TH DECEMBER SO WE CAN MAKE YOUR PROJECT LIVE BEFORE THE UNIVERSITY CLOSES ON 19TH. PROJECT REVIEWS WILL THEN RESTART ON 3RD JANUARY 2019.
Crowdfunding is sponsorship by a crowd of many donors, each making an individual, small donation in return for a small reward, like a t-shirt, a project poster, an event ticket or a synopsis of your research findings. It works really well for universities because there are large groups of people who want to see your projects succeed, such as alumni, your friends, your family or colleagues.
Your sponsors will be individuals such as alumni, friends, and family. Occasionally, they may also be complete strangers! How many people your project reaches is up to you!
Yes! There is no ceiling to how much you can raise and it is common for projects to raise more than their minimum and sometimes more than their funding target.
We ask you for two amounts - the minimum you need, and your ultimate target. Funds only change hands if a project has reached its minimum once it hit its end date. This means you only need to carry out your project and deliver rewards if you achieve this minimum target. We recommend setting the minimum at the smallest amount you need to complete your project and successfully deliver rewards. You can still set a bigger project target as well! Most projects receive considerably more than their minimum.
When you publish your idea or event, we call it a project. For your idea to become a project, you must have a clear goal and be able to explain how you will spend the funds you raise.
We cover the costs of the platform and payment processing fees, so that you always get 100% of the value of your pledges.
Please allow 21 days from the end of your project for payment to be made.
