Fundraise at your university

Whether you're a student or staff member, part of a society or RAG group, or maybe just a group of friends, there are lots of ways you can fundraise at your university. Have fun, meet new people and even learn new skills to include on your CV, all while supporting Crisis to end homelessness for good.

Do your own thing

Every year our amazing supporters fundraise for Crisis in so many different ways. Use an existing skill or hobby, take on a challenge or get together with friends to fundraise in a way that works for you.

A-Z fundraising ideas
Organise a RAG raid

RAG Raids or bucket collections are such a great way to raise money and awareness as a group. Get a group together and get in touch for materials and help with permits.

Fundraise in Celebration

You could work with your university to donate a portion of ticket sales for an upcoming event like fresher's week or summer ball, or ask friends and family to donate to Crisis in celebration of your graduation.

Check out our fundraising events

We have lots of organised events across the country including swims, walks and runs. You could join with friends or as a group or society and fundraise together to maximise your impact!

Take a look at our events

Raising awareness and helping people to understand the causes and impacts of homelessness is a huge part of ending it for good. You can do this by:

  • Learning more about campaigning on our Campaigns webpage
  • Reading more about our current campaigns and find out how you can get involved
  • Sharing Crisis' campaigns on social media
  • Shouting about them on campus - tell your classmates and professors, put up posters or hand out flyers

You can also raise awareness by hosting your own awareness-raising event on (or off!) campus - bring your university together and tell them about homelessness, Crisis and how they can get involved.

Have any other ideas about how you can raise awareness? We'd love to hear them - please get in touch with us at!
