Trusts at the University

About the University

The University of Melbourne, established in 1853, is now governed by the University of Melbourne Act 2009 (Victoria).  All gifts to the University can only be applied for the objects of the University, as those objects are set out in that Act.

As the University is a public university, the University has been endorsed as a deductible gift recipient.

Gifts to the University made during the donor’s lifetime may be tax-deductible.
