Thank you

The University of Sydney is a place where ideas and new thinking are ignited, and where our people create innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems. Thank you for helping to make this possible.

2014 was another record-breaking year for the University, as we raised more than $83.5 million from more than 12,500 supporters.

With such outstanding results it becomes increasingly clear that our supporters are highly engaged with our work and share our passion for making a difference.

Your generosity is inspiring our brightest minds. Thank you.
