Your support makes all the world of difference
When you contribute to the University of the Sunshine Coast, every dollar has a lasting impact. Your donation helps our students, assists us to grow our research capacity, to continue to improve our campus, and to give back to our community – right now, and into the future.
Each year, many hundreds of USC students receive much-needed support to achieve their academic goals through scholarships, bursaries, prizes and awards – many of which have been established by private donors, as well as local and national organisations. Your support also assists with the establishment and maintenance of vital facilities and services for campus and community use.
Whether you or your organisation chooses to support the USC Starfish Program, USC's Giving Day (G-Day), explore creating an award for our students, or you would like to consider leaving a Bequest in your will, we can help. Please contact the Development Office for advice and support.
USC is very grateful to our donors, supporters and friends, all of whom contribute significantly to our continuing development.
