Staff have a unique insight into the life of the University. Many witness the stress many of our students go through in relation to financial difficulty, or personally know the researchers who are unable to get funding to continue their vital work.

Many staff seek to make a difference and give regularly - to vital research projects or to students in financial need through salary packaged payroll deductions. For these generous people, the impact of philanthropy is immediate and close.

You can support the following programs and charities through Workplace Giving:

  • The Student Support Fund
    Providing grants to students with genuine financial need to help them pay their rent and day-to-day expenses so they can focus on their studies.
  • Long term support for scholarships
    Your continued support of the Future Generations Scholarships Fund ensures that scholarships can be made available to bright students now and into the future.
  • Research
    Some of the finest minds in the world are leading important research into areas as diverse as biomedicine, the environment, neuroscience, culture and the arts. Your generosity helps ensure this vital work continues.
  • Library and Cultural Collections
    Your gift provides crucial support to the University's cultural collections, extensive library and archives.

External charitable organisations including Medecins Sans Frontieres, Oxfam AustraliaAustralian Red CrossWorld Vision Australia.
