Welcome to Carnival RAG

Welcome to Carnival RAG. Established in 1880, we are the largest student-led fundraising society at the University of Birmingham. RAG stands for Raising and Giving and our aim is to raise as much money as possible through as many daring, innovative and exciting ways as we can think of and we want you to join us!

Our message is simple; Bad Things, Good Causes. From climbing Kilimanjaro, cycling from London to Paris and jumping out of planes to mystery bar crawls, campaigns across campus and hitchhikes through Europe, we run a whole range of events for you to take part in and help us raise money for some incredible charities!

Last year, we raised a record breaking total of over £220,000 and this year we're aiming to raise even more and would love for you to join us! Check out the video below for a glimpse of what we do.

It’s completely free to become a member of Carnival RAG and with over 700 members, we are one of the largest societies at the University of Birmingham. To join, head to The Guild of Students website, login and become a member of Carnival RAG. For all the latest news and events and to see how you can get involved, check out our Facebook Page.
