Report to Donors

Stories of philanthropy inform and enrich our University. We are delighted to share with you The Australian National University 2022 Report to Donors.

The 2022 Report to Donors celebrates the generosity of the ANU donor and volunteer community, and the many ways in which it contributes to the University. We hope you enjoy reading this collection of inspiring stories that demonstrate the importance and impact of philanthropy.


Cover story: BirdCast

ANU donors have helped Sustainable Farms to create BirdCast, a web tool that works to protect the habitats of birds in Australia. As these two native Rainbow Lorikeets huddle together to form a heart-shaped image, they represent the collaborative effort of a community committed to making a positive difference.
