Raise and Give (RAG) is the area of the Union that raises money for charity. Each year we focus on two local charities which our members pick, so the power is really in your hands. RAG simply wouldn't be a success without the commitement and dedication of our memebers who organise and manage our fundraising events.
These fundraising events are for all students and help to raise money whilst having fun. Getting involved in RAG will give you a number of benefits with employers wanting to see commitment in graduates and you can demonstrate this by raising money for charity, alongside your studies.
This year, our two chosen RAG charities are:
DrugFam - providing care to those impacted by addictions with drugs, alcohol and gambling.
Road Dahl Marvellous Children's Charity - providing specialist nurses and support to children with underfunded medical conditions.
Please donate and fundraise as much as you can throughout the year. Donations can be given using our Just Giving link.
Our members have enjoyed being a part of RAG that they've even set up our very own RAG society with the aim of bringing together a team of people passionate about raising money for charity and working towards reaching our RAG target for the year.
With there being such a passion for student fundraising and members wanting to host a range of events, each year we hold election for the role of our RAG Ambassador. Your ambassador works alongside the RAG society to help organise fundraisers, host events, and support all of our members who want to take part in RAG during their time at Uni.
If you have an idea for a fundraiser you'd like to run or would like to get invovled with fundraising at Bucks, drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
