Have you thought about Crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding involves raising lots of small amounts of money from a large number of people, mostly online. Donors pledge a donation to your project – and sometimes, to incentivise giving, they receive non-monetary rewards in exchange such as a postcard, ticket or merchandise.

Exeter has its own dedicated crowdfunding platform at - we support you through every stage of the process. Lots of student projects have successfully raised thousands of pounds to help them successfully fund a range of projects. For more information, read more about it here or email
