Spread the word about our Crowdfunded Poll Project During #UMassGives

April 29, 2015

We at UMass Poll cannot thank you enough for your ongoing support, especially during this year's UMassGives campaign.    With your help, we have taken our first step toward our goal of conducting the first ever crowdfunded poll! But there is still more work to do.  Help spread the word during the #UMassGives campaign which runs from noon today (April 29th) through midnight tomorrow (April 30th). Share our project with your social networks by using #UMassGives.  Recruit friends to donate to our project so they can help us build the first ever crowd-sourced poll!  Remember, a donation of $50 or more will also include a UMass Poll t-shirt, so you can wear your support for UMass Poll! 

This week, our featured UMass Poll video showcases Charlotte Kelly.  Charlotte is a UREP research assistant for the poll and is finishing her junior year as a Political Science major.  She has been a research assistant for 2 years, has worked on numerous polls, and has collaborated on a paper addressing endorsements and ground game in the 2014 Boston Mayoral Election. She is just one of many students who have benefited from the ability to get hands on experience doing survey research with UMass Poll.

For more information about Charlotte or UMass Poll, check out our our Minute Fund Page.  Also, be sure to share our project with your friends and Tweet about your donations by using #UMassGives  @UMassPoll!

Thank you, 

The UMass Poll Team

Thanks for your support of UMass Poll!

Let me offer my gratitude for your support of the UMass Poll Crowdfunded Survey project! 

While we did not raise enough to sponsor an entire poll, we still plan to carry through with the spirit of the project by including questions on a national poll that will be conducted within the next few months. If you gave $100 or more, you will soon receive an email where you will be asked to provide input on what we should ask about in that survey. 

And if you gave at the $50 level or above, we will be contacting you to arrange for the delivery of your UMass Poll t-shirt!

Thanks again for your support of UMass Poll!
