Every year the Foundation helps hundreds of disadvantaged students begin, continue, and complete their studies at Federation University. With your help we can make sure no one misses out on achieving their potential.

Support the Foundation's work

Setting up a staff giving donation is easy, affordable and can be tax effective. All Federation University Australia staff are welcome to join. From as little as $5 per fortnight, you can make a real difference. If you prefer to make a one-off donation, you can do that too.

We understand that times are tough for many in our community right now. You may not be able to take part in Staff Giving. However, if you can help, we encourage you to do so.

100% of your donation goes toward Staff Scholarships awarded to higher education and TAFE students at any campus.

Join the Foundation community, and enable disadvantaged students, and those confronted with social or economic hardships - Secure their future.

"After attending a Foundation Scholarship Award event, I realised what a profound affect that the scholarship had on students. The stories of hardship and the positive impact that the scholarship had on their lives was inspiring. It was impossible not to donate!" I have been privileged to receive an education and am delighted to contribute to the Foundation to enable this opportunity for others." Professor Dara Twomey
