How Crowdfunding Works

Sponsors help fund projects. To help this process along Creators offer rewards for donations. Funds only change hands when a project achieves its minimum needed.

For more information on the sponsorship process for both Sponsors and Creators, please visit our section.

Who can be a Creator?

University of Pécs (Pécsi Tudományegyetem) has been created for students, so a Creator must be a registered member of a university, college or school. Where the Creator is a member of staff, the project must be for the direct benefit of students.

Crowdfunding is an inherently public process so, for child protection reasons, Creators have to be at least 16 years old. If younger than this, students can ask a member of staff at their school to register as the Creator of the project, e.g. their teacher or coach.

Why do alumni sponsor projects?

Most alumni had close attachment to clubs and societies during their time at university, college or school. They are keen to help and support their old establishments, especially when Creators offer them rewards which help them to reconnect.

How much can Creators raise for projects?

University of Pécs (Pécsi Tudományegyetem) supports all sorts of projects, from big to small. Creators can raise funds for projects of any size they wish. There really isn't a limit on too small or too big - whether that's £100 or £100,000 University of Pécs (Pécsi Tudományegyetem) can help!

What is all-or-nothing funding?

All-or-nothing funding means that unless your project has achieved its minimum fundraising target by its fundraising deadline, no donations or rewards change hands.

Assuming you reach your minimum target by your fundraising deadline, we will process your pledges. In order to arrange payment, please contac us after your completion date. If we don’t hear from you, we will get in touch with you.
