Students’ Union Invite Applications to Annual Charity Fund


Students’ Union Invite Applications to Annual Charity Fund


NUI Galway Students’ Union has opened the application process for Charities wishing to be considered as beneficiaries for its annual fundraising campaign for 2020/21. 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 in the process!


This year the SU will be introducing it’s new Charity Challenge which will involve students completing a different challenge each month during term 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 here: NUIG SU Charity Application Form 2020 and the closing date for applications is 5pm Thursday 10th of September 2020. Please note that any canvassing will automatically disqualify your charity from this process.


Pádraic Toomey, Students’ Union President said: “Despite the constant cutbacks and daily challenges we all face, 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. 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.”
