Student fundraising

We want students to join us in creating a society that works for the 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK.

Whether you are part of a Raise and Give society (RAG), an individual at university looking for fundraising ideas, or if you would like to sign up to one of our student specific challenge events, find out how you can get involved here.

Challenge events

We have partnered with Choose a Challenge, the sector’s leading student challenge events provider, to give you the chance to take on a number of incredible challenges. From conquering Mount Kilimanjaro, trekking to Everest Base Camp, taking on the New York Marathon or seeing the historic sights of Machu Picchu, there’s a challenge for everyone.

There’s an excitement when fundraising for the National Autistic Society. There’s so much to get involved in and the student team are supportive and motivating. I am proud to fundraise for the National Autistic Society.

Charitable collections

Charitable collections are a great way to raise money, and you’ll be surprised by just how generous the public can be.

If you have already signed up to take on a student challenge event with your RAG then the student team will have a number of collection opportunities for you throughout the year. However, if you’re not part of a RAG but think collecting might be for you then please email You can collect anywhere across the country, but you will need the student fundraising team to supply you with a permit.

RAG Charity of the Year

Choose the National Autistic Society as your RAG Charity of the Year and you’ll help make a positive impact on the lives of the 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK.

When you choose us as your charity of the year, you will be provided with a dedicated account manager to support you throughout. We work with all RAG societies and understand that you know your campus best. Whether it’s for a single event or for a longer partnership, we will work alongside you to ensure your event is a success.
