Adopt a charity

So what exactly is Adopt-a-charity (AAC) ?

AAC is a scheme that works with societies to help them fundraise for charities of their choice. There's also an opportunity to claim back up to 50% for your club or society too!

So what exactly do we do?

If you are a society that would like to raise funds with the help of Sheffield RAG, AAC is the first point of contact.

How Sheffield RAG can help you raise funds

10% from all money raised goes to RAG to fund the services we offer to anyone raising money through the ‘Adopt a Charity’ scheme.

We have a full time staff member who work towards helping with budgeting, finance, risk assessments, insurance, event-planning and other fundraising legalities.

RAG is also a working committee consisting of 18 volunteers who can all help you in your fundraising. We can assist you with designing publicity and advertising your events using our Facebook and Twitter pages. Our ‘Adopt a Charity’ team are designated to helping you with ideas creation and booking spaces around university for your society to use.

We can sort out more formal things as well, like permits from the council for RAG RAIDS, setting up Virgin Money Pages online and giving you the pink buckets for you to collect money in. We’re also here to help with any general fundraising queries and to guide you through your event – by the end of the year you’ll be doing it like second nature!

I would like to raise funds, where do I start?
Bake sale / small events

You can raise funds through Adopt-a-charity. Please fill in the enquiry form (atleast 10 days before the event).

Large Events

You can raise funds through Adopt-a-charity, however you must fill in the form atleast 6 weeks before the day of event, as this gives us time to prepare. Regrettably, Sheffield RAG will not be able to organise events which are not within the timescale of 6 weeks.

Events during exams / vacations

You must fill in the enquiry form atleast 10 days before the exam or vacation period begins. This is also subject to approval by the Adopt-a-charity team.

Where do I get the RAG buckets?

RAG buckets can be collected from the Welcome desk effective September 2017.

We are Sheffield RAG!
