At UNSW we aspire to continuously improve our position as a leading global research university with a strong tradition of excellence, innovation and social justice.

Giving to UNSW is about supporting cutting-edge research, creating equality of opportunity for students and establishing partnerships that positively impact our community and the wider world.

UNSW is Australia's global university, and it is our donors who can help us make a difference that transforms the world.

 “If we didn’t raise additional funds we wouldn’t have the great university that we have. While we are called a public university, we’re really not public anymore – and people need to understand that.” 
Jason Coombs
Director of Strategy for the Office of the President and Vice-Chancellor

 “To receive any postdoctoral fellowship is a privilege, but to receive one as the result of a donation is a particular honour, and it brings with it a particular sense of responsibility.” 
Dr Caroline Wake
School of the Arts and Media, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
