QUB RAG is the official fundraising group of the Students’ Union - bringing Queen’s students together to make the world a better place! Students at Queen’s are automatically a member of RAG, and each year it’s led by a committee of dedicated, passionate, and lively volunteers.
RAG helps students give back to the communities and causes that they’re passionate about, all while having fun and making new friends. RAG organises student fundraising events, activities and competitions that are slightly beyond the norm!
Each year, as part of the SU Elections, the entire student body votes for RAG's charities. Your elected RAG Charities for 2023/24 are:
Brainwaves NI is the only volunteer-led brain tumour charity in Northern Ireland. Charities tend to focus on research, so we are unique in that in addition to providing significant research funding we also provide support to our members by bringing them together.
Hope 4 Life NI is a small grassroots charity, with a dedicated team, who have delivered mental health and suicide prevention workshops to 28,000 young people and supported over 7,000 on our after-hours online support line.
QUB RAG are now searching for their 2024/25 charity partners.
- Be a Northern Ireland, Scotland, or England and Wales registered charity.
- Have a base/service in Northern Ireland.
- Demonstrate an unrestricted income of less than £200,000 (by unrestricted we mean where funds can be spent across the activity of your organisation and are not restricted to a certain project/initiative/funder requirement). For clarity, your charity can have other restricted income streams e.g. government funding, grants etc.
- If successful, be able to ringfence funds to spend within Northern Ireland.
