Durham University Charity Fashion Show (DUCFS) is Europe’s largest and most financially impactful student-led charitable event, created to inspire societal and behavioral change through the vehicle of creative philanthropy.
Having raised just under a million pounds in the past five years, DUCFS has transformed into one of the most influential events in the student calendar.
Operating across a year-long campaign, DUCFS hosts art showcases, discussion panels, networking, student recruitment and social events whilst developing a wide-reaching, highly successful social media campaign.
Culminating in a show with over 3,100 guests and 15 partners, our 41st year is poised to be bigger and better than ever.
Having reflected on 40 years of DUCFS last year, for our 41st year we look to the future. DUCFS is firmly established as Europe’s largest student-led charity fundraising event, having raised £221,000 in our 2022 campaign and over a million pounds in the last six years. Yet, just as we have seen our campaign expand and flourish, we are eager to continue this momentum and take our efforts to even greater heights. It is this upward trajectory that makes our chosen theme for this year, “The Age of Inception”, all the more exciting and relevant. We believe that it is through looking ahead and embracing change that we can make the greatest impact.
Collaboration and partnership are integral to the success of DUCFS’ 2024 campaign in ensuring that we continue to maintain and expand our philanthropical reach. We are keen to forge meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships through our unique, student targeted, 2024 marketing campaign. Therefore, we very much hope that a partnership with DUCFS 2024 is something that both excites and interests you.
