The Office of Development is proud to announce the launch of Pilot Funder, the University’s first crowdfunding platform, at pilotfunder.up.edu. All registered UP student organizations, competitive sports and academic teams, full-time faculty, certain UP staff members, schools, colleges, institutes, and departments that have a project benefiting the UP community can use Pilot Funder.
Pilot Funder will run projects at least twice per year (excluding calendar year end and March/April for Pilots Give) once the program has gained significant interest and activity. Applications are currently being accepted. Typically, the most successful campaigns are community oriented and have leaders that are passionate about the project and its outcomes. Participants are given access to their Pilot Funder web page, as well as tools to help maximize the success of the campaign.
