The impact of giving
These stories are just some examples of the remarkable generosity of the ANU community: from students calling alumni on the annual phone appeal, to family members honouring their loved ones, to world-leading philanthropists creating opportunities for future leaders.
It is the generosity of donors which allows students to take maximum advantage of an ANU education, creates opportunities for teaching and research staff to achieve their highest potential, and supports new and innovative research.
View the full honour roll of donors for major benefactors and donors who have supported ANU in 2016. The 2016 list also includes donors who have realised a gift through their will or have given via the ANU Foundation USA and the ANU (UK) Foundation.
Yam Story III © Emily Kame Kngwarreye/Copyright Agency, 2018
Emily Kame Kngwarreye was one of Australia’s most significant contemporary artists. Her remarkable work was inspired by her cultural life as an Anmatyerre elder, and her lifelong custodianship of the women’s Dreaming sites in her clan Country, Alhalkere. The lines in Yam story III resemble the crazed pattern of cracked earth where the yam vine grows, and mirror the arterial roots reaching deep for water in the dry desert sands. These lines also symbolise the ancestral connections that have been passed down through the Dreaming. Like many Aboriginal artists, Emily painted on black canvas, which replicates the familiar surface of black skin upon which the artists engage in body painting.
