Universities, RAGs and Students

Dig Deep was founded by student volunteers in 2007 and student fundraising still remains at the heart of everything we do. So far, we have supported over 2,000 students to take on challenge events and as a result have reached over 200,000 people in East Africa with clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene.

We’ve been in

your shoes

We’re not asking you to do something we haven’t done ourselves. The challenges team have all successfully taken on multiple challenge events as students themselves and so are best placed to provide the support you need.

Our support is tried, tested and shown to work

Our personalised approach puts the students who are fundraising for us at the forefront, with a wealth of fundraising resources to suit everyone.


We are proud to have won the NaSFA Student Charity of the Year award for our highly rated support.

Fundraising for Dig Deep creates a HUGE impact

We’re a student founded award winning charity which has already transformed the lives of over 200,000 people.

Through helping children and their families to realise their right to clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene, your support will save lives, improve education, empower women and girls and strengthen livelihoods.

We want to see your community grow and develop

Through everything we do, we strive to create a community of enthusiastic volunteer fundraisers who will aspire to keep making an impact after their challenge. 


Time and again we’ve seen our incredible challenge fundraisers develop into committed RAG representatives for years to come.

We get

stuck in

We don’t just leave you to it. We give it our all, especially when it comes to being present on campus.


Our determination and support during recruitment has resulted in a track record of large teams of happy fundraisers who have the power to make a huge impact.

Our volunteer’s feedback speaks for itself

We’ve been running student charity challenges since 2011 and our feedback speaks for itself. Hear what our Kilimanjaro participants had to say:


  • 99% were happy with their climb crew, with 94% rating 5/5

  • 95% rated pre trip support as good or brilliant

  • 94% would recommend us to a friend

  • Only 8% of our students had fundraised before and 90% rated our fundraising support and coaching as good or brilliant

“The team at Dig Deep put our students at the very heart of what they do and it shows in the incredible results they achieve year on year with their Kilimanjaro Trek. Our students' eagerness and ability to complete their fundraising stems directly from the level of personalised support provided by the Dig Deep team and the easy feeling of being part of a team they instil in all of the participants from the very start.
As a Rag we are constantly in the loop and never disappointed when we ask for something from the team - they always go that extra mile to help. We really value the relationship we have with Dig Deep here at LSU and love working with them.”
