Make Us Your Charity of the Year
By making Student Minds your society’s charity of the year, you’ll have the opportunity to learn some new skills, bond further as a team and play a part in transforming the state of student mental health. Here’s what you’ll need to do.
1. Let us know
Register your interest and we’ll send you a fundraising pack. Our fundraising team will also be on hand to offer you advice and support.
2. Let your students’ union know
They might be able to provide you with collection tins and other resources, and help you to publicise your event.
3. Set up an online fundraising page
You can easily set up a page on JustGiving. This is a great way to boost your offline activities.
4. Make a fundraising plan
Do you want to run a series of fundraisers? Are there any local challenge events that you’d like to do as a team? Make sure to consider key academic dates, e.g. when exams and reading weeks will be.
5. Pay in the money raised at the end of the year
Any money raised at events will need to be transferred through your Students’ Union’s RAG bank account to make sure that they are complying with charity law. They might have guidance on this on their website - otherwise get in touch with them to find out more.
We are always grateful for the support of RAG groups, and are committed to supporting the fundraising skills development of those we are working with. If your RAG is interested in picking Student Minds as one of your support charities, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
