How Crowdfunding Works:

  • Post your project
  • Describe it in words and visuals
  • Set a funding goal and timeline
  • Make the case for why it is important
  • TELL EVERYONE you know about it, ask them to tell everyone they know, etc... 

How Sponsor Etown Works:

  • Full-time faculty and staff and students are eligible
  • Applications received 30-45 days in advance of each cycle will be considered for that start date - this gives time for the campaign manager to get primed and ready
  • Applications should submit projects using the "Submit an Idea" page. A detailed decription of the information needed to submit an idea can be found there.
