Staff giving

What our Golden Lanyard students want you to know.

Each year, our staff fund vital scholarships by donating to the Golden Lanyard Staff Giving program. These scholarships change students’ lives and send a powerful message to our communities that we care.

Through the program, staff can make tax-deductible donations to help students reach La Trobe and thrive while they're studying here. Staff who contribute receive a golden lanyard in acknowledgement of their generosity.

Our staff giving community is recognised annually through the Staff Awards, which recognises the division and campus with the highest staff giving participation.

Since the Golden Lanyard program launched in 2013, staff have collectively donated to support over 50 full access scholarships for students from disadvantaged and diverse backgrounds.

But for every student who receives a scholarship, many more miss out. Your donation today can help another deserving student access the lifetime benefits that higher education brings.

If you’re not already one of our amazing supporters, there are many ways to get involved. You can:

Every donation helps us create a better future for more students.
