Students at University of Texas Austin used online crowdfunding to create a documentary on their Solar Decathlon project


Students from the University of Texas at Austin wanted to produce a documentary of their participation in the U.S. Department of Education’s Solar Decathlon in 2015. They needed to raise funds for the film, with the added incentive of a $10,000 matching gift if they raised that amount.


The University of Texas at Austin used the our crowdfunding platform to engage donors online, boosting participation by also partnering with multiple academic departments on campus to promote the campaign.


The group raised $21,422 overall, crossing the key $10,000 threshold to receive their generous matching gift from the anonymous donor.
