Fundraising at your university

Glasgow University Secret Policeman's Ball, 2012

Our student groups are some of the most creative and inspiring fundraisers we have! Whatever your group decides to do to raise money for Amnesty International UK, our community fundraising team is on hand to help.

Fundraising is vital to our success. The vast majority of our funding comes from small gifts from individuals so anything you can contribute helps – without the support of our members, we wouldn’t be able to carry out human rights work across the world. Unlike many other charities, we don't get significant support from businesses and we only take government money for our human rights education work. This ensures we maintain our independence and answer to no one other than our members.
