Staff Giving Appeal


"[...] there's a real sense of satisfaction in thinking that you're contributing to helping someone who's doing it tough or hard at university be able to get the degree that they deserve."

- Professor Peter Shergold AC, launch of the Staff Giving Appeal - Potential UNLIMITED.

As a proud staff member you have a hand in defining who we are as a University. Our mission to achieve excellence through scholarship, teaching, learning, research and service to local and international communities, beginning with the people of Western Sydney, belongs to you.

We are committed to the success of our students – we do the extras, take on tasks and challenges above our designation; and at times we reach into our own pockets where we see a lack.

We are deeply entrenched and engaged with the communities of Western Sydney – providing access to world-class, research-led education and creating opportunities for the people of our region. Our work transforms lives and communities for the better. It's who we are.

You have an opportunity today to reinforce who we are by joining the Staff Giving program and lending your support to deserving students, who, through no fault of their own, are limited by significant hardship. 50 students are currently being supported through Staff Giving with a Western Sydney University Scholarship – a sobering thought is that at least 4 times that number applied for assistance this year.

This is a "defining" moment.

Through Staff Giving you can make automated, fortnightly pre-tax donations via payroll to support our students or our charity partners. 100% of your contribution will be directed to the cause of your choice and the University will match dollar-for-dollar any staff donation towards scholarships. This means that the impact of your giving in support of our students will be doubled.

Join Staff Giving today and help our students reach their potential UNLIMITED. It's who we are.
