Following our most successful year ever in 2015, the University’s annual outreach campaign is re-launching in March, 2016. Last year we spoke to 28,000 alumni, who between them gave a phenomenal $266,000.

The majority of funds raised were allocated to equity scholarships to assist disadvantaged students study at Monash. Without this financial support, many of these people would not have had the opportunity to access a university education.

Alumni donations also funded remarkable research programs including Eliminate Dengue Fever and Inhaled Oxytocin, aimed at providing medical support for mothers in the developing world. Projects like these make a significant impact on a global scale by literally saving lives and changing them for the better.

Alumni donations were also allocated to improve student resources in the library to ensure Monash University students have the best learning tools available to them.

Our sincere thanks to all alumni who participated in last year’s alumni outreach campaign to make it a success.

While financial donations are appreciated, giving back to Monash University is also about maintaining connections. Your feedback on what we are doing is invaluable, and we want to ensure that Monash University remains as important to you now as it did when you were studying here.

We look forward to speaking to you, and hearing more of your stories about your time at Monash University.
