Fundraising Hub

Welcome to the virtual Fundraising Hub!

Raising money for charity:

The Students’ Union itself is a registered charity, and as such, all affiliated Student Groups are part of the registered charity.

This means that all money that is fundraised for charity must be banked through the SU in order to comply

with UK Charity Law. This applies to all Student Groups all year round, including out-of-term time:


We are a cashless union, so we will only accept a deposit to the SU account. To send the money you will need to fill in

our Charity Donation Form hereafter the event. You can also hire our card reader (sum-up machine).

This can be booked through the Event Notification Form.


If you are raising money via an established online platform (e.g. JustGiving) then you must let us know by

emailing Once your fundraiser is finished, you must let us know the total that has been

donated online,so that we can update our records. As well as ensuring that we abide by UK Charity Law,

this process also makes sure that your Student Group gets recognition for all of your fundraising.


Full information can be found in our Committee Training handbook, 'Student Group Financial Management'.

If you've got any questions about fundraising for an external charity, please email us at

We'd love to hear from you!
