McGill Crowdfunding

McGill Crowdfunding, formerly known as Seeds of Change, is McGill’s own crowdfunding website aimed to help students, alumni and friends raise funds for grassroots projects. Since its launch in September 2014, the platform has supported over 170 projects, which have collectively raised over $1,300,000.

One of the very first successful crowdfunding initiatives was the Strategic Planning and Community Involvement Fund, which provides support, funding and resources to McGill medical students and student groups seeking to engage in community-based initiatives.

“SPCI is set up with a dual mission of both improving the function of the Medical Students' Society as a student governance body, as well as empowering students in leading community initiatives,” said Amy Huang, then co-president of the SPCI committee. “In the past, SPCI has funded several successful initiatives such as Vitamin Sports, which organizes weekly sessions for elementary school kids to get active and be engaged in sports, as well as the Save the Mothers Walk/Run, which held its inaugural event in Montreal last May to raise funds for improving maternal and child health in developing countries.”
