Staff Giving 2016

Staff supporter thank you event

More than 50 staff members and conjoints who support UON through philanthropic giving were recognised for their generosity at a special 'thank you' afternoon tea on 1 December 2016.

The event, hosted by the Chair of UON's staff giving program, Professor John Germov, and Director of Advancement, Ms Rebecca Hazell, was a chance to thank our amazing staff and conjoints who have supported the University through donations or fundraising efforts over the past year.

Staff heard first-hand from a Shaping Futures Scholarship recipient, Rebecca Northam, who told of how the kindness of strangers had made a real difference to her life.

More than $170,000 has been donated by staff to the Shaping Futures Scholarship Fund supporting talented and dedicated students facing hardship since the fund's establishment in 2011. So far, 89 Shaping Futures Scholarships have been awarded to students, 34 of which were awarded in 2016 and 18 in 2015.
