UNSW is committed to consistent and transparent administration and reporting of all fundraising contributions through the UNSW Foundation, a unit within the Division of Philanthropy at UNSW. The UNSW Foundation is responsible for the core roles of Development, and Alumni and Engagement.

The UNSW Foundation promotes philanthropy to advance the University’s goals in research, faculty projects, scholarships, external engagement  and capital campaigns. The UNSW Foundation office receives contributions made by alumni, supporters, foundations and corporations. The University invests and manages the contributions to protect and enhance their value and disburses them to UNSW’s faculties and divisions.

All donations to the University are administered through the UNSW Foundation office. The University of New South Wales (UNSW) is endorsed as a deductible gift recipient (DGR) by the Australian Taxation Office under item 1 of section 30-15 (Subdivision 30 BA) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.
