Click: Essex's crowdfunding platform

Help is just a click away.

Click, Essex's innovative crowdfunding platform is a place for students, staff and alumni to put forward big ideas and projects for fundraising. 

The special thing about Click is that, unlike other crowdfunding platforms, it's completely free for students, staff and alumni to use. You'll get 100% of the funds you raise, with no fees incurred. 

And thanks to generous donations to our Student Experience Fund, projects submitted by Essex students are eligible for up to £500 of match funding. 

Match funding means that the University of Essex agrees to ‘match’ donations received to a project, £1 for £1, up to an agreed limit. For example, £100 of match funding means that every £1 raised will be worth £2, until the project total reaches £200.
