Staff Giving

For almost 145 years, our generous community of supporters have provided crucial funding to our students, research programs and University projects. 

The University of Adelaide staff delivering teaching, research and support at the coal-face know first-hand the financial hardships our students face. They are also committed to the opportunities that world-class research and a University of Adelaide education can provide to students of all ages and backgrounds.

You can make a difference

While our staff make a difference every day, many choose to extend this impact by supporting important programs such as the Student Emergency Fund or the Indigenous Support Fund, or donating to another area of the University they are passionate about, such as scholarships or research. In 2022, staff also have the opportunity to support the refurbishment of the iconic Elder Hall by dedicating a plaque in their name or honouring a loved one. 

"The generosity of our staff, their commitment to students and the passion with which they support University programs is remarkable." Professor Peter Høj AC, Vice-Chancellor and President

Workplace Giving Program

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

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. A summary of your workplace giving and details of the deductions will be sent to you at the end of the tax year.
