Imperial College Raising and Giving (ICU RAG) is the fundraising arm of Imperial College London, raising over £100,000 over the last few years! We raise money for a variety of good causes through a large variety of crazy events, from hitchhiking around the world in our Jailbreak to taking part in countrywide bucket collections to joining us in some of best nights out Imperial has to offer. Regardless of what you want RaG has something for you. Please sign up to our mailing list to stay up to date with the latest events!

RAG is one of the oldest parts of the Union and has been through many evolutions throughout its long history. RAG is all inclusive and everyone at Imperial can get involved in our activities, membership is free for all students! Every year we run a RAG week which is a week dedicated just to fundraising, we have run events such as bungee jumps and Valentine’s day balls in the past.


Every year we make thousands of pounds for local, national and international charities

Our mission is to raise as much money as we can for our selected charities all why organizing fun events for the students of Imperial. Every year we choose 4 charities, 1 international charity, 2 national charities and 1 local charity, along with supporting various charities throughout the year.


We have a large team, the executive committee consist of the key positions in RAG, followed by a larger committee. Consisting of all other positions, of which there are over 30. Some committee elections will take place at the end of October.
