Fundraising Guidance

  1. Any club or society wishing to host a fundraiser must fill out the fundraising form at least 15 working days in advance of their event.

  3. As part of your application you will need to upload a risk assessment and if you are fundraising for an external charity, a charity authorisation letter. You can only fundraise for a UK based charity that is registered with the charity commission. If you are organising a bake sale, ticketed event, donation drive or tube station/street collection, please make sure you have read the additional guidance before filling out a form.
