NUI Galway Students’ Union is seeking applications from charities wishing to be considered as beneficiaries for its annual fundraising campaign for 2018/19.
Application forms for the 2018/19 fund are available from www.su.nuigalway.ie, with the closing date for applications being 5pm on Wednesday September 5. Any canvassing will automatically disqualify a charity from this process.
Last year students took part in Croagh Patrick climbs, cake sales, table quizzes, a 'Christmas Day in November' event, comedy gigs, pet farm visits, and collection days to raise €20,500. All money raised from these events was donated to the Students’ Union nominated charities for 2017/18 – Domestic Violence Response and AMACH!
“Despite the constant cutbacks and daily challenges we all face, NUI Galway students have a very proud tradition of raising money for charities," said Students’ Union president Megan Reilly. "This year we hope to raise even more money for good causes.”
