The Spark Process

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is sponsorship by a crowd of many donors, each making an individual, small donation in return for a small reward, like a t-shirt or a project poster. It works really well for universities because there are large groups of people who want to see your projects succeed, such as alumni, or your friends and family.

Who are the sponsors?

Your sponsors will be individuals such as alumni, friends, and family. Occasionally, they may also be complete strangers! How many people your project reaches is up to you!

Can I raise more than my funding target?

Yes! There is no ceiling to how much you can raise and it is common for projects to raise more than their minimum and sometimes more than their funding target!

Who can use Spark?

You must be a registered student at the University of Warwick. Any individual, team, group, society, etc can use Spark as long as you are a student!

What's all-or-nothing funding?

We ask you for two amounts - the minimum you need, and your ultimate target. Funds only change hands if a project has reached its minimum once it hit its end date. This means you only need to carry out your project and deliver rewards if you achieve this minimum target. We recommend setting the minimum at the smallest amount you need to complete your project and successfully deliver rewards. You can still set a bigger project target as well! Most projects receive considerably more than their minimum!

What is a project?

When you publish your idea or event, we call it a project. For your idea to become a project, you must have a clear goal and be able to explain how you will spend the funds you raise.


If you have any questions or need any help with your project, please email and we will be happy to meet with you.


Please contact us at to book your workshop time slot. You can do this before or after setting up your project.

Are there any fees?

No. We cover the full cost of the platform and Gift Aid pays for Stripe processing fees.

Spark Matched Funding

Alumni of the University of Warwick have generously donated to provide matched funding for your projects. They will match fund your project up to £250!
