Why giving matters

Swinburne continues to thrive due to the particular combination of our industry connections, technical and higher education training, focus on community and commitment to research and innovation.

We are dedicated to accessibility and inclusion. This extends to enabling students to undertake our courses whether on campus or online. Our innovative learning environments focus on developing creativity and problem-solving skills for our students. This approach equips our students to be adaptable life-long learners.

Our excellence and leadership in higher education depends greatly on the generosity of alumni, parents and friends. From annual gifts that make an immediate impact to endowed gifts that last for generations, all contributions serve as a catalyst for positive change.

We encourage you to read through some of the stories of why giving to Swinburne matters.
