Why give to us?

Think about making the world around you different. What would you change?

Making a difference is much closer than you might think and it can all happen right here at La Trobe University – with your help.

We launched our first-ever fundraising campaign to raise $50 million in 2017. Since then, we have set ourselves an even more ambitious goal: $100 million by 2022.

For more than fifty years, we have been challenging convention and building a better tomorrow by combining research excellence with accessibility and diversity. Our Make the Difference campaign will secure this legacy for the future.

There’s nowhere else in Australia quite like us. At La Trobe, we have the unique ability to identify potential where others may not see it, to shine a light on excellence that would otherwise remain hidden. Every gift makes the difference between what we do every day, and what we know is possible.

But we can’t do it alone. We need people like you to partner with us in the work that we do, each and every day.

As a former student I feel so grateful for the impact La Trobe has had on my life. It has been a life-changing experience for me. Leaving a gift in my will is my way of making a contribution and helping to ensure future generations enjoy the benefits of higher education.
