Charities invited to apply to become beneficiaries of NUIG SU fundraiser

The application process has opened for Charities wishing to be considered as beneficiaries of NUIG Students’ Union’s annual fundraising campaign.

Last year, students took part in cake sales, table quizzes, a comedy gigs, pet farm visits and collection days to raise €10,000 for Domestic Violence Response and Sexual Health West.

And this year the SU will be introducing its new Charity Challenge which will involve students completing a different challenge each month from October to May, bringing a new approach to fundraising in the current Covid-19 climate.

Application forms for the 2020/21 fund are available from the Students’ Union
website www.su.nuigalway.ie and the closing date for applications is 5pm Thursday 10 September 2020.

Please note that any canvassing will automatically disqualify your charity from this process.

Pádraic Toomey, Students’ Union President said that despite constant cutbacks and daily challenges, NUI Galway students have a very proud tradition of raising money for charities.

“This year we hope to raise even more money for good causes with our new Charity Challenge,” he said.

“Each month NUI Galway students will take on a different challenge that will be adaptable to the challenges of living with Covid-19.

“These challenges will encourage our students to get involved in helping their community whilst also setting goals for themselves each month.”
