Submit a Project Idea!

Now Accepting Applications
for the 2022-23 Academic Year!

Please complete the following project application which is required for all first-time Spartans Give projects.  


How to run a successful crowdfunding campaign: 

  1. Read the Spartans Give Guidelines for potential projects before beginning your application.
  2. Plan to submit your application at least 30-45 days before your desired fundraising start date. 
  3. Create a passionate crowdfunding team of at least 2-3 people. Your team leaders will need to be committed to creating your campaign content/updates and to actively solicit donations throughout the entire campaign.
  4. Develop a large crowd of supporters. Your team must be willing to personally reach out to family, friends, colleagues, alumni, etc. for support. Each team member should have at least 100 relevant personal contacts to solicit in person or via e-mail or text message. Regularly posting on your social media channels (both personal and those connected to your area of campus) is essential.


How does the University assist with the process?

A member of UNCG's Annual Giving Team will work with you throughout the campaign to help make it a success. 

This includes:

  1. Scheduling a brief "Learn About Crowdfunding" introductory session with your team
  2. Providing you with a detailed crowdfunding guide that includes step-by-step instructions on how to launch your campaign, best practices to reach your goal, and ideas on how to properly thank your donors
  3. Placing the content you create on your crowdfunding page
  4. Scheduling one-on-one check-in meetings
  5. Helping you to strategize how to best promote your campaign
