Abstract This talk will look at our Fundraising for Archives inspired Crowdfunding campaign where we successfully raised our target fund to help catalogue and digitise the Peter Mackay Archive, a collection of material relating to Southern African history. We will discuss the strengths and challenges of the campaign and the process of applying the Crowdfunding model to archives as well as our plans for the future of both this collection and fundraising practises at the University of Stirling.
