Drop-in sessions for questions about crowdfunding

25 Jan 2017

The University’s ‘Crowdfunding at Manchester’ platform has so far allowed seven student-led projects to raise a total of £11,895 to fund society activities, research and international volunteering

The platform is administered by the Division of Development and Alumni Relations, where Regular Giving Officer Kiera Gould is available to give tailored support to individuals and teams looking to start crowdfunding. The platform can be used by staff or students who have an idea to enrich the student experience or who work on impactful research which would appeal to potential donors.

Crowdfunding using the University’s platform has many advantages for users, including match-funding for eligible projects, promotion to alumni and support throughout the process.

From 25 January we will be running Crowdfunding Drop-in Sessions on the last Wednesday of every month. Staff members are welcome to drop by if they have questions about the feasibility of a project for crowdfunding, or need advice for starting or promoting a campaign.

The drop-in sessions will take place in Mansfield Cooper 2.14 (1pm to 3pm) on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, 25 January
  • Wednesday, 22 February
  • Wednesday, 29 March
  • Wednesday, 26 April
