Crowdfunding may seem like a quick and easy way to raise large sums of money, but successful projects require a great deal of time (10-12 weeks) and intense work (planning, soliciting donations from family/friends, writing copy, producing videos, creating social media content, thanking donors) from a team of individuals who are passionate about the project, are willing to take ownership of the project and have a large network of potential supporters to engage. The UNM Foundation team is here for assistance and guidance through the lifetime of the project, but cannot solicit your network for you.
What are the requirements for a successful campaign?
- A passionate team. As mentioned, a passionate team of at least 5 project advocates is needed to run the campaign. Daily work is required over this 10-12 week period.
- A large crowd of supporters. The project team must be willing to personally reach out to family, friends, colleagues, and alumni for support.
- A charitable/not-for-profit project. All projects through ImpactUNM must be charitable in nature, meaning it's not for a business or any for-profit venture. All projects must directly relate to the University of New Mexico.
