HawksHub connects our people to our passions. It helps members of the University to find the funding they need to explore the interests and enhance our community through creative, and innovative projects; and it allows our alumni, parents and friends of the University to support a project that particularly appeals to them.
WHAT IS CROWDFUNDING?
HawksHub is a crowdfunding platform. Crowdfunding is sponsorship by a crowd of many donors, each making an individual, small donation in return for a small reward, such as a t-shirt or a project picture. HawksHub provides a platform to students to showcase projects to a potentially huge audience, and gives sponsors an easy way to donate.
HOW DO I CREATE A PROJECT?
Simply login and enter a few key details: a description of what you want to do, a funding target and completion date, and some rewards for pledges. Images and videos can also bring your project to life! We offer advice, tips, and feedback all along the way.
Every project must achieve its minimum needed by its completion date or no funds change hands. Why? Part of the appeal of crowdfunding is that sponsors get to engage with projects and see where their money is going.
