Adopt a Charity

Adopt a Charity is a scheme that works with societies to help you fundraise for charities of your choice. There is also an opportunity to claim back up to 45% for your club or society.

If you are a society that would like to raise funds with the help of Sheffield RAG, Adopt a Charity is the first point of contact.

How does Adopt a Charity work?

In the last academic year, Adopt a Charity ran 103 different events for 51 different student groups.

We have a full time staff member who works towards helping with budgeting, finance, risk assessments, insurance, event-planning and other fundraising legalities.

RAG is also a working committee consisting of 14 volunteers who can all help you in your fundraising. We can assist you with designing publicity and advertising your events using our Facebook and Twitter pages. Our Adopt a Charity team are designated to helping you with ideas creation and booking spaces around University for your society to use.

We can sort out more formal things as well, like permits from the council for RAG RAIDS, setting up Virgin Money Pages online and giving you the pink buckets for you to collect money in.

We’re also here to help with any general fundraising queries and to guide you through your event. By the end of the year you’ll be doing it like it is second nature!
