UWE RAG is committed to supporting a wide range of charities. In 2015/16 we supported over 60 local, national and international charities. There are many different ways in which those charities were supported and lots of ways for charities to partner with UWE RAG. Unlike many other RAG's accross the student fundraising network, we don't pick particular charities but choose to support many different charities. UWE RAG are passionate about putting the money they raise back in to the local community, and as such aim to donate 50% of the money raised to groups working in Bristol and the local South West region.
be on our charity database
Apply to be on the UWE RAG Charity Database. All not for profit organisations are eligible to apply. By applying you will be automatically be placed on the database which student groups use when deciding who to fundraise for: http://freeonlinesurveys.com/s/jiZ1RAlA
The Datbase is used in two ways:
- To assist our Sports Team and Socieites to choose a charity that they will fundraise for as part of out Adopt A Charity Scheme.
- And local charities will be included in our long-list when the RAG Committee allocates our Community Fund to local charities.
By applying for RAG funding your organisation will automatically be placed on the RAG charity database. Furthermore, students choose who they fundraise for; there is no guarantee you will be chosen, despite being on the database.
Applications for the University of the West of England (UWE) RAG database can be submitted at any point. However, the applications will be collated and processed in two rounds:
- First deadline: 31 August 2017
- Second deadline: 12 January 2018
Any applications received between these two dates will be stored ready for processing in the next round of applications.They will then be uploaded to the database provided to students.
