Impact of Giving
Sharing our supporters' stories is an important way to acknowledge their generosity. We celebrate the impact of every gift, big and small.
Our donors are inspirational. Although every donor has a very personal reason for giving, the outcome of each gift is the same – transformation. Helping disadvantaged students access scholarships, contributing to the growth of our library collections, funding cutting-edge research, leaving generous gifts in a Will – there isn't a single part of the University that isn't impacted by philanthropy.
Our Donor Charter
We are grateful for the remarkable support from all of our donors, and we are committed to building a relationship of mutual trust and respect. It's important to us that we make clear our commitment to you, our donors. We commit to:
- Acknowledging every donation
All of our donors will receive an official University of Adelaide receipt, and appropriate acknowledgement, recognition and publicity.
- Using gifts in accordance with the intentions of the donor
We will ensure that all gifts are administered consistently with the letter and spirit of the law and are used in accordance with the donors’ intentions. Undesignated donations will be used to support the University’s highest priorities.
- Respecting the privacy of donors
We will respect the privacy of our donors, and will provide anonymity for donors who request it. Donor information will be used by the University to maintain contact with donors and keep donors up-to-date with information about the University, its services, events and achievements. Donors’ names may be published in the annual Impact of Giving report.
- Being transparent and informative
Representatives of the University will at all times identify themselves as such when they contact current or potential donors. Once a donation has been made, the University will provide benefactors with regular reports about the way gifts have contributed to our success.
We ascribe to the Code of Practice for Australian University Philanthropy
