Apply for Ignite!

Are you an advisor to a UConn student group that wants to fundraise to better accomplish goals?  Does your group want the chance to win bonus money for your group’s activities?  Are your students interested in marketing, fundraising and giving back to the UConn community?

Apply for Ignite!

The Ignite competition supports student fundraising efforts. Groups compete for points for the chance to win bonus money provided to ensure UConn students know the value of fundraising and giving back to the UConn.

Selected groups will use an online giving platform provided by the UConn Foundation, and will receive marketing and fundraising guidance from professional staff. Groups retain the funds that they raise through Ignite for the future use of their UConn cause, as well as any bonus money they receive.

To be eligible, student groups must:

  • Be affiliated with the University through an approved University organization, academic, or research program. (Student organizations must be officially recognized by the Division of Student Affairs and have participated in SOLID Training.)
  • Have a faculty or staff advisor recommendation included in their application.
  • Have an established fund at the UConn Foundation. If you are unsure if your group has a fund, please call 860-486-1173 or email
