Boost is a crowdfunding platform, developed in partnership with the University of Hull, which gives you the opportunity to fundraise for great ideas.
We encourage you to use the Boost website to promote your creative proposal to friends, family, alumni and fellow students who, by donating, will bring your project to life.
What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is sponsorship by individual donors, which collectively aims to reach one goal or target. It’s basically giving people, who would love to see your project succeed, the opportunity to help you out and get involved.
Donors may make a donation in return for a small reward like a personal thank you or a shoutout on social media; they might want something bigger like an invitation to an event or regular project updates. Crowdfunding whilst you’re at University has the added bonus of people already backing you and wanting you to succeed – alumni, staff, fellow students, researchers or friends and family.
Who can take part?
Boost Crowdfunding is open to all constituted Hull University Union student activity groups. This includes ratified sports teams and societies, student media, LINKS and RAG.
Developing Your Project
All you need is an idea. Got one? Brilliant - let’s take the next step. For your project to become a Boost Crowdfunding Project you must have a clear goal and be able to explain how you will spend the funds you raise.
We run regular workshops to help you develop your ideas into projects. We will offer you support from the very start – right through to the time your project is successfully funded. Visit the Boost website for a huge range of resources to help you achieve success.
