On behalf of ANU Advancement, I thank you for the positive impact you have on the ANU community.
I am delighted to present the 2019 Report to Donors - a celebration of you and all that your support makes possible at the University.
This report is a collection of the stories that you have helped us write over the last year. Each of these stories shows how you inspire us to deliver positive outcomes, both within the ANU community
Your generosity is powering world-leading research, creating the right environment for our talented students, and helping us forge new partnerships with Indigenous Australia. Your support is enabling us to harness the power of education to enrich lives and create positive change in society.
In 2019, the University took a bold new admissions approach, with a commitment to offering every student in need a chance to attend Australia's national university. Thanks to you, our focus to Support Australia's Students is creating opportunities for students to succeed in their study and careers, no matter their background or means. You have inspired us this year to establish the Kambri Scholarships, to help Indigenous students attend ANU and go on to fulfilling careers, while giving back to Country.
It was my pleasure to meet many of you at the Celebration of Giving and other events for our donor community last year. Our team will continue to seek out new and creative ways to connect with you meaningfully over this and the coming years.
The first months of 2020 have been challenging for many, so I hope you enjoy taking this chance to reflect on these inspiring stories as much as I did. I look forward to continuing our important work in helping shape the future of ANU and beyond.
