What is NaSFA

NaSFA stands for 'National Student Fundraising Association'. NaSFA is an independent, membership led organisation, representing all student fundraisers in the UK. NaSFA represents higher and further education, and isn't just for 'RAGs' but also for individual fundraisers and other types of fundraising group.

NaSFA was created at the RAG conference held in Durham in 2011 to bring student fundraising groups from across the country. It was set up initially by 16 student fundraising groups and is open to any student fundraising group across the UK.

Every year a committee of six representatives are elected at the NaSFA AGM, which is part of RAG Conference. The elected committee oversees the activities of NaSFA and ensures that the voice of student fundraising is strong.

NaSFA's key principles are:

  • Ensure strong communication internally to the student movement and externally to the wider voluntary community sector
  • Act as a key driver behind developing student fundraising activities across the student movement
  • Ensure inclusivity for the newest, smallest student fundraising groups up to the largest fundraising elements of the movement
  • Showcase the inspirational impact of our movement, sharing best practice between members
