Donate

A regular or one-off donation is a practical way for you to make a difference. As a donor, you can choose where you would like your gift to be put to work.

Whether you care most about the cause of tertiary education, the future of your discipline, supporting ground-breaking research, or helping students achieve their potential, any contribution you can make will have an impact.

Acknowledging your gift

Recognising the generosity of our donors is very important to us. Named projects are recognised in the Foundation's Annual Report, and donors are regularly invited to University and Foundation events and acknowledged in articles in the University's alumni magazine, Victorious.

Private donors of $10,000 or above and organisational sponsors of $50,000 or above are welcomed into the Victoria Benefactors’ Circle.
