Boost is our crowdfunding platform. Here we've collected some of the student union's most exciting projects. Boost allows friends of the university to support creative and innovative projects that particularly appeal to them.
Projects are created by our students. At present project creators must belong to a student union activity group with a Hull University Union bank account. These are AU sports clubs, societies, LINKS, RAG and student media. We review all projects for suitability, judging them on the quality of the presentation of the projects, their goals, and the level of organisation and commitment demonstrated by the teams behind 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 on the project, or sending them a message.
What is Crowdfunding?
Boost is a crowdfunding platform. Crowdfunding is sponsorship by a crowd of many donors, each making an individual, small donation in return for a small reward, like a mention on social media, a project poster or ticket to your event. Boost provides a platform to showcase projects to a potentially huge audience, and gives sponsors an easy way to donate.
How Do I Create a Project?
Simply login and enter a few key details: a description of what you want to do, a funding target and completion date, and some rewards for pledges. Images and videos can also bring your project to life! We offer advice, tips, and feedback all along the way. Please get in touch with us for any support you might need or to discuss your project.
Are there any fees?
We cover the costs of payment processing fees, so that you always get 100% of the value of your pledges.
Every project must achieve its minimum needed by its completion date or no funds change hands. Why? Part of the appeal of crowdfunding is that sponsors get to engage with projects and see where their money is going. This keeps everyone happy!
