Somerville’s new crowdfunding platform empowers our students to pursue their passions and enhance our community through creative and innovative projects. Through the platform, they can directly connect with people who are keen to support their efforts and ambitions, and become a part of their success. It also provides a way for alumni and friends of the College to come together and support student-led initiatives that particularly appeal to them.
If you support a project, you will automatically receive updates about it. You can also interact directly with the team behind the project by leaving a comment or sending a message.
So many thanks to those of you who have already supported projects! Please do watch this space to see what new and wonderful things our students are aiming to achieve.
WHAT KINDS OF PROJECT ARE SUITABLE FOR SOMERVILLE CROWDFUNDING?
Crowdfunding is the funding of a project or venture by a crowd of many donors. It enables donors to make an immediate impact by coming together in a community of support and encouragement to make a project happen.
Projects can be about anything, but they should focus on the benefit they will provide to students, the College or the wider community. Project success heavily depends upon on the levels of organisation, commitment and enthusiasm demonstrated the leaders and the team.
