RAD (Raise & Donate)

RAD is the fundraising society made up of students from both Falmouth University and the University of Exeter Penryn Campus.

Many students' union around the country have a Raise and Give (RAG) group, but down here in Cornwall we thought we would mix it up a bit and decided that Raise and Donate was much better... RAD!

RAD stands for Raise and Donate and that’s exactly what we support you to do - raise thousands of pounds for local, national and internationally recognised charities. The only limit to what counts as a RAD event is your imagination and creativity. More traditional RAD activities include street collections, sponsored events, raffles, bingo, quizzes, themed nights, cake sales or jumble sales. We also have multiple Charity Challenges and events.

RAD is completely run by student volunteers and is a great way to gain events management, volunteer coordination, budget handling and leadership skills. If you’ve got what it takes, come and let us know. We are keen to hear about any form of charity fundraising that you can dream up, however simple, weird or wacky. We will give you all the support and guidance you need to make it happen. In 2018/19, FXU students raised over £80,000 for a range of amazing charities, so why not be part of the team to raise even more this year?

Look at our Facebook for more information, or check us out on Instagram @thesuRAD

Due to COVID-19 our international challenges may not be able to go forward, but here are some of the natonail challenges we are running this year:
- Skydive 
- Jurrasic Coast 

We also help and support students who have their own fundraising ideas, anything from bake sales to marathons, the only limit is your own enthusiasm! So please get in touch via radcommittee@outlook.com if you have any questions, want to have fun and raise money, or generally be involved!
