Our Charity Fundraising and Ambassador projects are an integral part of our programme, and give our volunteers an opportunity to promote and support the work of the charity they support.

Charity Fundraisers raise money for a cause for a short, finite period of time. The parent charity does not have to be registered with the Volunteering Service as a partner, but organisations must have a UK charity number and all funds raised must be donated to the charity through the Volunteering Service. We will not support projects where money is raised to fund a challenge or activity carried out by a volunteer. For example, an overseas volunteering trip. If a charity approaches us directly, wanting UCL students to fundraise for them, they will have to register as a partner.

Charity Ambassadors promote the aims of an external charity, including fundraising and raising awareness of a particular cause and/or campaign. They recruits UCL students to assist with this, and are likely to undertake this role for an academic year or more. Charity Ambassadors can work as a group to complete their activities.  The external charity must be an existing partner of the Volunteering Service. If you are not sure if the charity is a current partner, please contact us. If you are a charity wishing to set up an ambassador group, please contact our Volunteering Partnerships Manager, Oliver Peachey.

If you are fundraising at UCL, you must apply through us. You must submit your form/request at a month before your planned event.

The lead on supporting Charity Fundraisers and Ambassadors is Santiago Torchiaro.
