Giving Back

Whether it’s creating new opportunities, driving new innovations, establishing new spaces or something else entirely – when making a donation to the University of Newcastle, you decide what impact your gift has.

Your generous support transforms students’ lives and research; empowering new ideas and solutions to be brought into the world. New solutions to life-threatening medical problems. New ideas for a better and more sustainable world. New technologies that create accessibility for those managing illness and disability.

Your gift could be more than monetary; if you are an alumnus of the University of Newcastle, then you could also provide valuable support by sharing your time, expertise and skills!

There are many ways that you can make a lasting impact by giving generously through the University:

  • Whether it’s inspiring the next generation of new through a mentoring program or internship or speaking at an event, every one of our alumni has something unique to give back.
  • You can impact students’ lives by donating to scholarships such as the Equity and Diversity in Medical Education Scholarship Fund. You can also speak to us about creating your own scholarship.
  • You can join our amazing group of regular givers – incredible individuals just like you who share our commitment to education, social justice and equity. Ongoing community support is essential to creating a more sustainable future for UON students and research. Automated monthly or fortnightly donations to your chosen cause can be set up here.
  • University of Newcastle staff also have the option of setting up automated, pre-tax payroll deductions here. Payroll giving makes it easy to regularly donate any amount from $2 at
