ARE YOU A STUDENT WITH A GREAT PROJECT? AN INTERESTING IDEA WITH A POSITIVE IMPACT? YOU CAN CROWDFUND AND TURN IT INTO REALITY!

Do you have a project that can have a positive impact on the lives of your fellow students, the School, the wider community and others around the world?

​As a SOAS Student you are eligible to Crowdfund for your project!

​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. SOAS Impact provides a platform to students to showcase projects to a potentially huge audience, and gives sponsors an easy way to donate.

​In the last 4 years we have supported the Ramadan Tent Project, Queer Asia, SOAS Drama Society, African Development Forum and Solar SOAS to name a few!

​If you are interested in supporting your student society or student led project head over to our crowdfunding page to see previous project and get involved! If you are thinking of setting up a project email our Crowdfunding team - aa168@soas.ac.uk

 

Here are some of our previous projects:

 

The Ramadan Tent Project

Crowdfunding for the Ramadan Tent Project allowed communities to come together for a daily Iftar. This project started on the green between the Brunei Suite and Senate House by Omar Salha, a PhD student, the success of this project led to the Ramadan Tent Project team being featured on BBC News, Buzzfeed, Huffington Post and more. The project is now in its fifth year and is feeding more than 300 people a night, with guest speakers.

 

Solar SOAS

Solar SOAS is a clean energy initiative set up by SOAS University of London students, supported by the SU and SOAS alumni. It has become the first community energy project to successfully install crowdfunded solar panels at a UK university. Crowdfunding has allowed SOAS and our alumni community to be a part of climate change solution.
 

SOAS Drama Society

'Knowledge is power' was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year. The students performed the piece at the London Student Drama Festival, three of the four prizes; Best New Writing and both Outstanding Performances for our two actors! Following this success, they raised money to showcase this at Fringe!
