Founded in 1983, DUCFS is the UK’s largest student-led fundraising event, based in Durham. As an organisation entirely led by students, DUCFS is underpinned by five fundamental values: inclusivity, collaboration, innovation, integrity, transparency. We believe that these values - when combined and celebrated - have the power to bring about a philanthropic impact to our surrounding communities.
Whilst our work culminates in an annual fashion show with 50 models and over 2,800 guests, we operate as an ongoing platform and campaign throughout the year that celebrates the power of creative philanthropy to catalyse societal change. Throughout the year, we host art showcases, discussion panels, networking evenings and club nights whilst also managing a wide-reaching social media campaign through releasing THREAD Magazine, photoshoots, and videography content.
