While funding is undoubtedly an important element to any project, remember that if you are setting up a Volunteering Group, you might not necessarily need any funding. 

Fundraising

We have a Volunteer Fundraising Partnership with the University of Edinburgh Development Trust which is a registered charity that oversees all charitable fundraising in aid of the University. Through this service you can:

 

  • - Turn your passion into a fundraising event
  • - Choose to support either an established project within the university or your own EUSA Volunteering Group

- Receive support for your fundraising activity

Set up an online sponsorship page

 

All money raised will go directly to your chosen project. Find out more information and download a fundraising pack here.

If you wish to fundraise for another charity, society or sports club, you can find out more information here.
