The University is matching all staff donations to scholarships, research, Indigenous projects, and more.
The UNSW community has a proud heritage of innovative research that improves lives and deepens our understanding of the world. Since 2015, members of our community have been generously supporting the University’s life-changing work through the UNSW Workplace Giving Program.
This program gives UNSW staff the opportunity to make a pre-tax donation through payroll every fortnight, and together they have given almost $650,000 to date.
These funds support many worthy causes across the University, including Indigenous projects, student scholarships, groundbreaking research, and more. In addition, staff can donate to a selection of Australian and international charities such as UNICEF, Oxfam, Médecins Sans Frontières and The Smith Family.
At an event last September for current Workplace Giving donors, Professor Attila Brungs thanked staff for their ongoing support. He also announced that the University has committed to match every donation made towards UNSW causes, dollar for dollar.
Lindsay Robinson, Chief Development Officer, said, “Small amounts go a long way – and this is especially the case with the University committing to match each gift, dollar for dollar.
“We want to let the UNSW community know that this initiative exists and encourage them to consider supporting causes close to their hearts for as little as $2 a fortnight,” she said.
