Raising And Giving

Raising and Giving (RAG) is part of the University of Surrey Students’ Union. Our aim is to fundraise for a variety of charities, locally and globally as well as engaging widely with the community here at Guildford. 

We run various RAG events throughout each academic year for students to get involved in – including bake sales, adventurous activities, Movember, Sleep Easy and RAG Raid. We provide a verity of ways for students at Surrey to get involved in fundraising. 

About Our Fundraising

All fundraising is completely student-led, this means that the RAG Chair, and RAG Representatives, and students choose exactly which events they want to run. Supported by the other elected officers, RAG aims to raise as much money as possible and have fun while doing so. 

All money raised from our events and challenges goes towards our chosen charities for the academic year. 

There are a number of ways to get involved in RAG. From being a RAG Rep to volunteering at one of our events. There’s something for everyone!

Your RAG Chair

Hi everyone, my name is Dan and I’m going to be your RAG Chair this year!

This year, I would like to work with the RAG Committee to get more Surrey Students involved with RAG, and make Raising and Giving a core part of our values. There are going to be multiple events and challenges to get involved in as an individual, and as part of a club or society.

We are also looking to celebrate student fundraising and volunteering achievements on our social media pages. I’m very keen to hear ideas and feedback from you all, please do contact me at ussu.ragchair@surrey.ac.uk

I can’t wait to see where we can take RAG going forward!
