Producing full recreational prosthetic arms for children, helping teachers create innovative curricula and a servant leadership award are among the six initiatives seeking financial support through Crowdfund UNC Charlotte, an online platform that assists members of Niner Nation fund unique experiences.
“Crowdfunding is an opportunity for students to reach out through a platform hosted by the University, to try to gain support for the initiatives they see important while they’re here,” said Shayna Long, assistant director of annual giving. “Niner Nation is a strong network of friends who love UNC Charlotte, and digital fundraising campaigns enable us to tap into those friendships.”
Crowdfund UNC Charlotte initiatives for fall 2017 are “The Helping Hand Project,” “Charlotte Teachers Institute,” “2017 NASA Student launch Competition,” “Derrick Griffith Servant Leader Award,” “Green Energy Train” and “Native and Underused Fruits.”
