YUSU RAG brings you fun, cross-campus, events and adventurous activities - in aid of good causes. Take a little time away from your studies: explore the secrets of student life in York on our Freshers’ Week Scavenger Hunt, or sign up for our charity challenge Trek. Just taking part helps York students do their bit for the wider world. But that’s not all you can do….
RAG is not only here to support our nominated charities – the committee are here to support you (or any groups that you are part of) in fundraising for whichever charity you choose.
RAG can help you with publicity materials and fundraising equipment. We can help you link up with an online giving platform that will help make your fundraiser even more successful. And we can help make sure that you stay the right side of the law.
Email email@example.com with the details of your fundraising activity and you’ll receive a response with all details of where and when you’ll be able to pick up your pack of fundraising essentials.
YUSU’s Student Opportunities are announcing the Dame Judi Dench Volunteering Cup for 2017! The cup will go to the College that, over the course of the JCRC/CSA’s year in office, has consistently displayed the strongest vision for, commitment to, and involvement in volunteering and fundraising.
Every college is eligible to apply for the award. Applications will open in the autumn term when the committee has had ample time to develop their RAG and volunteering opportunities and to raise their RAG total for the year; applications will then be reviewed by a panel of Sabbatical Officers and members of staff. The winners will then be announced in the Spring Term, coinciding with National Student Volunteering Week 2018.
You should start volunteering and fundraising in your College now; you have an entire year to ensure that you can submit the best application possible and give your College the chance to be the champions of 2017!
RAG support a variety of charities that all tackle current issues and that give real benefit to the charities end users.
We raise money for local charities through our collegiate system – each college, teams up with charity that is chosen on a 3 year basis, ensuring collaboration and consistency.
We raise money for National and International charities through cross-campus activities. We shortlist a set of charities that we hope to work with each year, then for each event/activity, the RAG Committee will choose a charity from the shortlist.
