QUT Giving Day

This campaign ended on May 22, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Queensland University of Technology by clicking here!

The inaugural #QUTGivingDay is a 24-hour day of giving that aims to bring together staff, student, alumni and friends to help support vital programs at QUT.

What is the goal?

We have been challenged by a generous donor to reach 500 donors by midnight on May 22nd. Help us unlock this gift, and take a step toward changing the world. 

Below are a few areas that you can support: 

Support our students –  make a real difference in the lives of thousands of students facing financial hardship through the Learning Potential Fund scholarship.

Every gift to the Learning Potential fund is doubled!

Save a child from serious burns –  create real hope for children and other people affected by serious health issues through world-class research.

Save the Great Barrier Reef – to find ways to make our natural, built and virtual environments more sustainable, secure and resilient for now and future generations. 

Other Projects to Support – this is a full list of the projects that we are highlighting for Giving Day. Thank you for your support!

You can give to any QUT scholarship, research, or program on Giving Day. If you can't find the project here, just go to Give Now and select "other," from the designation drop-down then type in the name of the project you want to support.
