You can borrow cash buckets from reception if the charity has not provided them for you. They will need to be marked with your charity’s information including name, logo and charity registration number.
When you are collecting cash, you need to bring the cash to reception immediately following your fundraising activity and you must specify that this money is for charity and not your subs account (if money goes directly into your subs account you will lose 20% to VAT)
Please let us know at least 10 days in advance when you expect to bring in cash and which students’ union reception you will bring it to.
The Students’ Union has a card reader that you can borrow for your fundraising activities. If you wish to use it, you will need to book it in advance. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with as much notice as possible but at least 1 week before you need to use it. Requests are granted on a first come first served basis.
You will need to sign an agreement when you pick it up. You will also receive instructions detailing how to use it. You will need to bring it back to reception immediately after each fundraising activity, e.g. If you are fundraising over several days, you will need to return the card reader at the end of each day.
Please note that income received by card reader is subject to a 1.69% admin fee.
When you are completing your ticket request, please state on the form that these are fundraising tickets so that they can be allocated to the correct cost centre. This will ensure that your charity receives the full donation (as VAT will not be deducted).
*Please note that it is not possible to donate money received from grant funding directly to charity.
