Straight after completing your charity fundraising event
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 for all Student Groups all year round, including out-of-term time.
We use this notification to donate funds to your chosen charity and to add them to the RAG totaliser for the year.

Applying for Student Group Grant Funding
Applications are taken at any time but reviewed once a month.
Every year, the SU has funds to support affiliated Student Groups in their development, and achieving their constitutional aims and objectives. This money is awarded to help cover the costs of Student Group events, campaigns, trips, equipment and much more.
It is important that you read through the Grant Funding Guidelines carefully. You should also read through the example applications before starting to fill out your own application form.
The Societies Council reviews all Grant Funding applications once a month.

Generating an Invoice
You can use the Invoice Template to invoice a third party, such as a sponsor, for money owed to the group. This contains the bank details and address of the Union finance office. Be aware that if the third party doesn't reference your group, the funds will not be allocated into your account.
