Fundraise at your University

Fundraise at University

We believe that everyone has the right to live in safety, free from fear and abuse. We are building a world where domestic abuse no longer exists.

Join our movement and help us make it happen.

Why your support matters

Domestic abuse is devastatingly common: 1.6 million women experience abuse every year. With three women being killed a fortnight by a current or ex-partner, so much needs to change before women are safe.   

We need people to come together and take action to end domestic abuse. 

Change attitudes and end abuse

Domestic abuse is a serious issue that can happen to anyone, at any age. You don’t have to be living with a partner or experiencing physical violence for it to be abuse. We need help to spread the word about what healthy relationships look like.

Change the law to better protect women

You can help protect survivors’ rights and campaign to bring about the change we need to end abuse. We successfully fought to make coercive and controlling behaviour illegal – our campaigning works.

Make sure no one faces abuse alone

Fundraising keeps our life saving support services open. We help thousands of women every year to escape abuse but it wouldn’t be possible without people like you.

How to support us at University 

However we work with you, our expert team will make sure you are supported at every stage of your fundraising. We’ll help you develop exciting new fundraising ideas and will provide you with everything you need to make your events a success. Get in touch.

We’d love to be your university’s charity of the year or selected charity for RAG week. Find out how to nominate us at your University and then get all your friends to vote for us!

Stuck for fundraising ideas?

We’ve got your back! We have so many ideas and resources that can help you put on some great fundraising events.  Check out more ideas here too!

  • Feminist cocktail party – Everyone joining pays a donation and brings along some ingredients to make a cocktail (with a feminist twist). Joan of Ark and Stormy, anyone!
  • Feminist movie night – Find a great venue, get everyone to bring their own snacks and charge a £5 donation on the door! Choose a feminist classic like Thelma and Louise or 9-5.
  • Jailbreak – Get a group of you to go on an adventure to get as far away from campus as possible within 36 hours – with just two rules: get sponsored and don’t spend a single penny on transport.
