Our first crowdfunding campaign

Budfunding originally was a crowdfunding platform. This has now transitioned into the Budfunding Scholarship where a portion of all sales from the expos and consignment goes towards an annual scholarship to be used on a project or initiative.

On our panel along with our experts, we had Sustainable Energy Development Masters’ students Stephanie Duncan and Samantha Irwin crowdfunding for a volunteer trip to Peru to provide sustainable electricity to rural communities. From the event the team was able to raise $1,600 towards their campaign with a final amount of over $6,000!

Panelist Oksana Treacy shared with us that there are very few truly eco-friendly RV options on the market. An engineer with over 15 years experience, she was doing research to create a low impact vehicle by combining energy-efficient building principles with the latest advances in electric and hybrid vehicle technology.
