The process and general timings of the Big Four selection is as follows:
- January: Applications open. Charities must complete an application form in full and submit this by the required deadline.
- Feb/March: Shortlisting. A panel made up of RAG committee members, the SU Community Officer and Volunteering Staff members will review the applications to create a shortlist of up to 16 charities. These charities are usually categorised under four general headings linked to the aims of the organisation, for example 'Health'.
- March: Voting. In March the student population are asked to vote for one charity in each of the four categories they would like to support in the next academic year.
- Easter: Announcement. We aim to announce the four charities selected before the Easter break.
- September: Support starts. The new academic year will start and RAG will begin fundraising for their new Big Four.
Bath RAG select four charities each year to support by creating student-led fundraising events throughout the year. The 2019-20 Big 4 selected by students are: Bath Samaritans, Genesis Trust, Wicked Weather Watch and Great Western Air Ambulance Charity.
