RGU: GO Fund Process


What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is sponsorship by a crowd of many donors, each making an individual, small donation in return for a small reward, like a project poster, a postcard or a T-shirt. It works really well for universities because there are large groups of people who want to see your projects succeed, such as fellow students, alumni, or your friends and family.

Who are the sponsors?

Your sponsors will be individuals such as staff, alumni, friends and family. Occasionally they may be complete strangers who have an interest in your project. How many people your project reaches is up to you!

Can I raise more than my funding target?

Yes! There is no limit to how much you can raise and it is common for projects to raise more than their minimum and sometimes more than their fundraising target.

What's all-or-nothing funding?

When crowdfunding we ask for two amounts – the minimum target and the ultimate target. Funds only change hands is a project has reached its minimum once it hits its end date. This means that you only need to carry out your project and deliver rewards if you achieve this minimum target. We recommend setting the minimum at the smallest amount you need to complete your project and successfully deliver rewards.

RGU Foundation Annual Fund Matched Funding

RGU Alumni from all over the world have given back to support those RGU students who following their footsteps. It is thanks to their generosity of our alumni and friends we are able to offer match funding to eligible projects of 50% of a projects minimum goal up to £1,000.00.

Are there any fees?

We cover all costs, so that you get 100% of the value of your pledges.

If my project is a success when will I receive funds?

Please allow for at least 14 days from the end of your project for payment to be made.
