Staff Giving

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

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 world-class research and opportunities a University of Adelaide education provides to students of all ages and backgrounds.  

You can make a difference

While our staff make a difference every day, many also choose to extend this impact by supporting students in crisis, through the Student Emergency Fund, or donating to another area of the University they are passionate about, such as scholarships or research.

I am tremendously grateful for the generosity of our staff and their commitment to our students and University programs. Professor Mike Brooks FTSE FACS, Acting Vice-Chancellor and President

Ways to give

Recurring gift

Your recurring gift is processed through the Workplace Giving Program (WPG).

One-time gift

You can also make a one-time gift through the online gift form.

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.

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