Each year, RAG supports four charities via their student-led fundraising events. These events help to raise money for the Big 4, with a small allocation going to the Small Charity Grant and to RAG's operating costs.
The Big 4 applications will open in January 2024 - watch this space!
If you are a UK-registered charity and would like to considered as one of RAG's Big 4 charities for the 2024/25 academic year, then please have a look at our Application Guidelines.
Please note: if you are one of this year's Big 4 you cannot apply again next year, you must wait until the following academic year.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
