One of the stand out events in Freshers Week this year was the much anticipated launch of the University’s new crowdfunding platform , CrowdFunding@Kent
A joint project between Kent Union and The Development Office, Crowdfunding@Kent provides a vehicle for small student projects to be funded throughout the year. The best projects could even receive match-funding up to £1000.
Students, groups and societies are invited to apply online. The most exciting and best supported projects will be first in the queue to try their hand at crowdfunding.
A test project run through the platform earlier this year called The Green Room – From Tree to Building successfully raised more than £6,000 to construct a teaching and social space using timbers cut from campus woodlands.
