Our Charities

Each year RAG has three charities to focus its fundraising efforts on, one local, one national and one international. The chosen charities are all nominated by students and are then voted on through a campus wide vote. If you’d like to put forward a charity, keep an eye out for when we open up nominations, which will be towards the end of the academic year. Contact us on rag@unionsouthampton.org for any further information about the process!
