Fundraising at University

There are many ways you can support St Mungo's at your University.

Fundraising at Uni is fun and rewarding. Not only is it a great way to meet people, it also looks good on your CV.

If you're at University, there are various ways that you can help homeless people by supporting us through your RaG (Raising and Giving society), students union, societies, halls or simply with a group of friends.

Get involved today

  • Choose us as one of your Rag charities to support throughout the year
  • Hold a raid in a local town or city (we can arrange a permit for you)
  • Join us for our annual Woolly Hat Day collections in January. We will provide you with accommodation in London for the night before as well as food and drinks on the day itself. Added to that our collection depot will be at one of our projects allowing you to see first hand the work we do
  • Get your society involved by holding a cake sale or quiz night on campus
  • Invite us to speak about our work. We also run personalised workshops for students, helping to improve employability and fundraising skills
  • Donate goods to one of our hostels.

In return for you helping us to help homeless people we can provide you with the following resources:

  • Regular contact from our fundraising team with a dedicated person, here to help at any time
  • Collection buckets/tins and raid permits
  • St Mungo's t shirts and fundraising materials
  • A fundraising pack including posters and packed full of fundraising ideas for you to hold on campus
  • Invite your committee to visit one of our projects so you can see how your hard work has made a difference.

Abseiling down the orbit in London's Olympic Park.
Rachel's iconic abseil

Rachel Lynch, from Loughborough University, abseiled down the ArcelorMittal Orbit in Stratford, London.

Rachel said: 'it was wonderful to see both students and staff from the Loughborough in London campus getting involved with RaG. I was honestly amazed and impressed by how many people wanted to take part in our first RaG event, and even more so when everyone made it down in one piece from that height!

Working with St Mungo’s to get the spaces and sign-ups for the abseil was incredible so thank you to them.'
