Who is Bath RAG?

Bath RAG is a student-led fundraising group at the University of Bath, RAG stands for Raise and Give. RAG has a student committee and several project/fundraising leaders.


What is the Big 4 Grant?

Each yeah Bath RAG supported by the Students Union, fundraise through a variety of means for a grant that is equally split between four chosen Charites. Students also spend the year promoting and volunteering with the organisations raising their profile and other activities. Two of the biggest fundraisers RAG is entering the Bath Half and selling tickets for the ROTORY Clubs firework display. In a usual year we aim to give each charity between £2k and £5k.
