NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2018-2019 ACADEMIC YEAR!
UCLA Spark is a crowdfunding platform open to registered student groups, including department-sponsored interest groups and SOLE organizations, Rec or Club Sports teams, UCLA Alumni, Faculty, Staff, Development Officers, and certain friends of UCLA.
If this sounds like you and you’re interested in launching a crowdfunding campaign, you’re in the right place!
Please complete the following application, which is required for all first-time Spark projects.
Projects related to raising funds for salaries and/or stipends are not permitted on Spark.
Have you or your organization completed a Spark campaign which ended after September 2016? If so, you don't need to complete this application again. Please email UCLASpark@support.ucla.edu and let us know you're interested in partnering with us again.
Unlike in previous years, Spark now launches projects strategically in groups. Please plan on submitting your application at least 30 to 45 days before your desired fundraising start date. Launch dates outside of the pre-determined modules may be authorized at the discretion of the UCLA Spark team.

Module 1: September 17th to October 17th, 2018
Module 1.5: October 29th to November 2nd, 2018
Module 2: November 5th to December 5th, 2018
