Staff giving

The Golden Lanyard Staff Giving Program enables La Trobe Staff to make tax-deductible donations to assist students to access a quality education at La Trobe.  Staff who contribute a gift of $20 or more annually receive a Golden Lanyard in acknowledgement of their support.

La Trobe staff are some of the most generous and committed in the country. In 2014, the program took the number one place in Australia for university workplace giving.

Participation sends a powerful message to our students and our community that we care. We care about providing life-changing opportunities for students and are committed to building better communities.
