Thank you for making an extraordinary difference

13 Apr 2022

For 75 years, The Australian National University (ANU) has helped address some of the most intractable challenges faced by society and fulfilled its unique role as Australia's first and only national university.

2021 was an unprecedented year, but the support of our donors, alumni and volunteers made an extraordinary difference.

The Support Australia's Students campaign concluded in December and exceeded its goals. We thanked over 3,000 donors whose generosity is removing barriers and ensuring students from all backgrounds have the means to fulfil their potential at ANU and beyond.

2021 Giving Day ran for 75 hours to celebrate the University's 75th anniversary, exceeding the $75,000 target to raise more than $125,000.

We received several significant gifts to the Kambri Scholars Program, ensuring Indigenous students can attend ANU, study towards a degree of their choice and build successful careers.

This report is a collection of stories you have helped us write over the last year. Philanthropy enables us to do things we would not otherwise be able to do.

Thanks to you, our students continue to have a world-class education and experience, and we continue to conduct transformative research towards an equitable future for all.  

The positive impact our ANU community makes in the wider world is made possible thanks to your generosity.

The Hon Julie Bishop
