What does it mean to be a beneficiary?
The UTS Technology Fund programme is a unique fundraising tool. We provide registered beneficiaries the opportunity to use our programme for raising supplementary technology resources for their organisations. This programme is run on behalf of XracktMe by UTS, and includes management of the programme infrastructure, logistics, fund allocation, client service, query management, and reporting tools. Where XtracktMe provides the registered beneficiaries with various resources, such as customised application forms, website content and advice on how to use the programme to raise funds to support their technology infrastructure.
