Crowdfunding

Our crowdfunding platform gives you the chance to support good causes – causes that have been chosen by students and staff to make a positive impact on society.

Whether it’s kick-starting a student’s theatre career with their first production or sending medical students to Uganda to set up a health clinic, there’s a project to inspire everyone.

How it works

Crowdfunding is sponsorship by a group of people, each making an individual, small donation.

Students or University staff pitch an idea and if you like what you see, you can back the project with a financial pledge. If the project meets its target and goes ahead, you’ll receive regular updates by email. You can also contact the project team directly by leaving a comment or sending them a message.

The fine print

Every project must meet its minimum target by the completion date or no funds change hands. Why? Part of the appeal of crowdfunding is that you get to engage with projects and see where your money is going. This keeps everyone happy!
