Advice on ensuring you maximise your donation drive for charitable causes

Another way to fund your society, events or projects is through donations, through things such as bake sales, busking or a pub quiz.  

 To collect donations for your society you can:  

  • Collect donations in a sealed charity bucket, this will need to be labelled with the Students’ Guild’s charity number –1136468, and the Students’ Guild’s and your society’s logo. Make sure it is clear to donors what the money will be going towards for the sake of transparency 

  • Suggested donations, these need to be collected in a sealed charity bucket as above. Remember entry to your event is free, with a suggested donation of £x for attendees, which they can choose to give or not.  

  • Bake sales are another way to fundraise for your society. Remember income from cake sales is VAT exempt.
