RAG (Raising and Giving) is the fundraising arm of the LSE Students' Union - join us to make change! Party, collect, hitch, climb, dance, trek (and more) with us! #EatSleepRaiseRepeat

About us

Join RAG if you want to make change through a diverse mix of events, campaigns and activities, in support of a variety of causes - ranging from women empowerment, disability and mental health, human rights, sustainability and homelessness. Each year RAG members vote to select three charity partners from local, national, and international categories. Together, we fundraise around £60,000 - £70,000 each year! 


Voting for RAG charity partners will open on the 18th of September - become a member to be able to participate! 

We also support other student groups and individuals to fundraise for various other charities throughout the year!


As the fundraising arm of the Student's Union, we offer assistance with all fundraising by students and societies on campus.

We can provide you with planning, as well as logistical and marketing support, so please message us with any wonderful fundraising ideas you have or any great charities you think we should be supporting! 



RAG membership is £2 this year - everyone is welcome here!

LSESU Vintage and Charity Shop 

We bring premium vintage and charity clothes to campus, all whilst donating proceeds to the RAG Charity Partners and promoting sustainability!

You can get involved and support us by simply buying some clothes, donating your clothes (during our opening hours), or volunteer in our shop!

We are looking for students looking to embed themselves into the LSE community by volunteering to help staff the shop, which is conveniently located in the centre of campus, so always max 5 minutes away from your next class!

Register your interest in volunteering via this brief sign up sheet:
