    If you have an item of cultural significance that you would like to donate to the University, we welcome the opportunity to speak with you. We are registered with the Federal Government's cultural gifts program, which encourages people to donate cultural items to organisations like ours.

    To discuss gifting an item to the University, please contact our Development team on +61 8 8313 5800 or

  • Workplace giving

    Many of our staff choose to make a difference to the lives of our students and researchers by giving through Workplace Giving (WPG).

    Workplace giving is a simple yet powerful way for current staff to make regular donations directly from their pay through payroll deduction. The amount you choose to donate is deducted on a fortnightly basis from your salary on a pre-tax basis and you receive an immediate tax benefit as you give. Workplace gifts don't attract a tax-deductible receipt as you are directly receiving the benefit from your pre-tax salary deduction. The details of the deductions will be sent to you at the end of the tax year.

    Follow these instructions to set up your recurring gift through Staff Services Online

    All gifts of $2 or more are tax deductible. The University of Adelaide is a recognised deductible gift recipient (DGR). 100% of your gift will directly support your nominated cause.

      $10 Gift $25 Gift $40 Gift
    Salary Range Cost to you Cost to you Cost to you
    $18,201 to $37,000 $8 $20 $32
    $37,001 to $90,000 $7 $16 $26
    $90,001 to $180,000 $6 $15 $24

    Please note the above amounts rounded to the nearest dollar. They are approximate and do not take into account other amounts that may be withheld from wages such as student loan repayments eg. HELP.
