Giving shapes lives

Giving to the University of Newcastle has a powerful ripple effect where changing the life of one person can often make a difference to the lives of many. Your gift, no matter how great or small, is not only an investment in a students' education or our world-class research, it is an investment in the future of your community.

Through strong engagement with our alumni, community members, and business and industry leaders we are turning your gifts into real-world benefits for everyone.

For me, it was important to invest in research as a way of investing in a better world for those who come after us.

About the University of Newcastle Foundation

The role of the University of Newcastle Foundation is to attract philanthropic support from alumni, community, business organisations and industry for the University. Our role is also to invest these funds and to ensure they are managed in the best interests of the donors, the beneficiaries and the University.

The University of Newcastle Foundation is built on a very strong tradition that goes back to the origins of the University. Since 1965 when the University achieved autonomy, members of the Hunter community and graduates have supported us in a variety of ways, from raising funds for the Great Hall, through to scholarships and prizes for students and endowed professorial chairs. Community support has helped shape the identity of the University of Newcastle and has provided it with a secure and solid foundation in which to grow and flourish.
