This report recognises the far-reaching impact that our donors have on all aspects of The Australian National University. I warmly thank all our generous donors for their exceptional contributions and commitment to ensuring that ANU excels in everything we do.
If ANU is to flourish as not just one of the great universities in Australia but the world, we need all the support from donors that we can possibly get.
The stories in this report show how philanthropy at ANU works to support real change. Whether through removing barriers that prevent some of the best students from studying at ANU or assisting research that delivers a real difference, your generosity helps us to create a better world.
I hope you enjoy reading about the inspiring stories in this report, from moving individual efforts such as Yuki Hokari's work to honour her brother's memory, to community efforts such as the student callers and alumni who participated in the most successful ANU phone appeal to date.
Philanthropy is the springboard from which our endeavours reach higher and travel further. I thank you for your generous and continued support.
