WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Innovatively redesigned crowdfunding platform Uhelpfund announces an exciting opportunity for college students to earn $2,000 towards tuition. The 'Pay it Forward' scholarship coincides with the launch of many user-friendly upgrades and a free 30-day marketing interface to the crowdfunding site.
To kick off the Uhelpfund redesign, Uhelpfund presents an opportunity as important to students, as it is to 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations.
Scholarship funds will be paid directly to the educational institution (college, university, theological seminary or post high school employment/career training program) of students who raise a minimum of $100,000 for their partnering nonprofit with a Uhelpfund crowdfunding campaign.
To be eligible for the Fall 2017 'Pay it Forward' Uhelpfund scholarship and to start raising funds on behalf of a nonprofit, students must submit a 1.) completed cover letter form and 2.) letter of intent form from their partnering nonprofit prior to June 15, 2017. (Send form requests to support@Uhelpfund.com.)
The 'Pay it Forward' scholarship benefits nonprofits in need of funding and college students in need of money for college tuition. To participate, students must be accepted, registered, or enrolled at a qualifying college or university, theological seminary or post high school employment/career training program. Eligible nonprofit organizations are federal tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofits, as defined by the United States Internal Revenue Service Code and verified as such through the Stripe payment processor (after Uhelpfund campaign creation).
After securing a partner nonprofit, students will create and manage a Uhelpfund crowdfunding campaign on their behalf following the free Uhelpfund 30-day marketing plan. The nonprofit must approve all campaign text and updates and provide materials necessary for publicizing the campaign. Required materials include social media networks and web applications including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, Email Marketing, etc.
Students, or groups of students, who raise $100,000 for their nonprofit will share the scholarship earnings. There will be intermediary incentive gifts provided by project corporate partners and the most successful project will receive an additional $500 bonus.
