What is Torch?
Torch is Baylor University’s crowdfunding platform. Torch was created to help the Baylor community members raise funds to help their ideas and projects take flight. It showcases the many exciting and varied initiatives across the Baylor campus that are the passion of our students, faculty and staff.
How does Crowdfunding work?
You are given the technology, taught how to use it, and then you raise funds from your own networks. It is important to understand that you will be soliciting your friends, peers, family, etc. Annual Giving and Baylor University will not be actively soliciting for your project on your behalf, that is up to you and your project leaders and teammates!
