YuStart and YuFund

YuStart – Matched Funding

Launched in January, YuStart is the UK’s first University crowdfunding platform, which has raised over £17,000 for 14 projects, ideas and events since it started. Projects have ranged from volunteering, outreach, research to sport and special interest societies, see the latest ones here.

This term we are offering a matching scheme for projects who use the site. Using £5,000 specially provided by YuFund (alumni donations made specifically for student projects) the Programme will help as many projects as possible until funds are used up. Find out more at www.yorkspace.net/yustart

Our YuStart team is here to support and advise projects who want to use the site and there is more on our website at www.yorkspace.net/yustart.

YuFund – application deadline

Formerly the York Annual Fund, YuFund gives grants and funding opportunities to departments, colleges, and student clubs and societies from donations made by alumni and friends of the University.

The YuFund Disbursement Group meets twice a year to consider applications and the deadline for the next round is Friday 24 October. More information about the process including eligibility and application forms can be found online at  www.yorkspace.net/yufund.
