About Us

Aims and Objectives:

  1. Promote and support employability opportunities in the third sector, an area lacking visibility at the University
  2. Introduce 4 charity campaigns this year for charities other than nominated or other societies, to raise awareness of issues/causes relevant to the student population/community of Exeter
  3. Reintroduce RAG’s headline events, this year focusing on making the fashion show a sustainable event for future years to come
  4. Raise £250,000 over the course of this academic year for nominated and challenge charities
  5. Provide a positive impact on the local community of Exeter by working alongside our nominated charities to help with the work they do

Raise and Give is the biggest fundraising student group in Exeter. We offer students the opportunity to raise money through organizing and participating in exciting challenges and charity events.

We put on some of the biggest events in Exeter and all in the aid of charity! This year we raised over £192,000!!

From getting you to hitch as far away from Exeter as possible in Jailbreak to finding the love of your life (or just a cheeky fling) in First Dates, or climbing Machu Picchu and Everest for RAG Challenges.

Through RAG you can face your fears and skydive, grow a stache for Movember (or be a mo-sista), meet the local donkeys for some destress and much, much more – all in the aid of raising record-breaking amounts for charity!

Whether you want to be in the middle of all the action or get behind the scenes with the event planning, promotions or sponsorship, RAG has something for everyone!

So, what are you waiting for? Join one of the biggest societies on campus and help make a difference!
