Our donors

Our donors transform lives. They have inspired many discoveries and many opportunities for new thinking and infrastructure, allowing us to redefine what’s possible for more than a century and a half.

They provide student scholarships and bursaries, enable innovative research, support teaching and learning initiatives and make infrastructure improvements possible. Our donors are an integral part of the University community.

Our donors lead lives that are as inspiring as their gifts. Their stories, and the impact of their gifts, show how giving can enrich the University and the wider world.

Those who give to the University of Sydney are inspired by the work we do and we are inspired by their vision of the future.

Our donors’ foresight and generosity allows our people to make new discoveries and address some of the world’s most pressing issues.

Thank you. With your support the University of Sydney is taking major steps forward.
