DUCK is the fundraising part of Durham Students’ Union which is a registered charity (1145400). We act as a charities committee, raising funds for existing charities in the UK and across the globe. DUCK is the Fundraising arm of Durham Students' Union and fall under their governance, providing the students with an array of diverse fundraising events to get involved with.
Monies raised through DUCK for particular charities are sent directly to them via Durham Students' Union's finance department. Monies raised for the DUCK allocations fund are divided at the end of the year and given as grants to various charities who have applied for our support through our applications process. These charities are all in line with our Giving Strategy.
When running events we incur a general administration cost or we use part of the fundraising costs to cover the general running costs of the event. We endeavour to keep these as low as possible.
