Education is incredibly important to us here at GoFundMe.  Students and teachers in the UK are doing incredible things, and we want to celebrate that.  That’s why we’re holding the Go Fund My Education Contest, as we head into the new school year!


If you start a campaign for an education-related cause between 4 October 2016 and 18 October 2016, and raise the most money of any other campaign started within that timeframe, you will win a prize from GoFundMe in the form of a donation to your campaign!


The 1st place winner will receive a grand prize of £3,000!  2nd place will receive £1,500, and 3rd place will receive £500.


You must create your campaign using the signup button on this page in order to be eligible to win.


Maybe you’re a student, with aspirations of obtaining a degree from your dream university.  Or, maybe you’re a primary school teacher who is in need of extra funds for a classroom project or renovations.  No matter who you are, you can make a huge impact with a GoFundMe campaign for your education-related cause.
