Recognising our supporters

Recognising the support of our donors is of great importance to us. La Trobe offers many opportunities for our supporters to be recognised and become involved in the life of the university.  Where possible we also provide opportunities for donors to meet the recipients of their gifts (i.e. students and researchers) at prize ceremonies and other events.

The Chancellor's Circle

The Chancellor's Circle is a select community of donors who give $1200 or more per annum to La Trobe students and/or research.  There are currently around 120 members in this special group which is comprised of alumni, staff and friends of La Trobe who share our vision for a stronger future.

Chancellor's Circle members receive invitations to special donor events, hosted by the Chancellor of La Trobe University.


All donors who have given to La Trobe University (in the previous 12 months) will have their names included in our annual donor publication (unless a preference for anonymity is specified).

Naming opportunities

For donors seeking naming opportunities, La Trobe can offer options including scholarships, buildings, research institutes and professorial chairs. This is a unique way to honour a person's legacy and ensure their identity and values prevail for future generations.
