Interested teams must apply and be accepted. Part of the acceptance process includes confirming that their project aligns with University of Alberta charitable giving guidelines and ethics.
For a $5,000 campaign, you'll need a core group of 12. Leadership training for five student leaders takes eight to ten hours. Student leaders then recruit seven champions, who commit to an hour training session which sets them up as fundraisers for the project. On average, the network of each champion will raise $500. For a larger campaign goal, the number of champions needs to increase to scale.
One faculty advisor is required for each team. They are welcome to participate in any and all training, but it is not necessary for them to attend. They are also welcome to participate as a champion. The faculty member must be in good standing and will act as the signing authority on the university's project account.
