The Vice-Chancellor's Fund

Light the way for the future

Donate now

Australia's first lighthouse forms the central element of our coat of arms.  A powerful symbol of our proud heritage and our vision for strength and wisdom. A beacon that lights a brighter future for everyone.  As a member of our alumni and community family, you are part of our history and our future.  The lighthouse symbolises this lifelong connection and the importance of a strong foundation. 

In the future, we will need capable people to find solutions to the world’s most complex challenges. We will need to continue to commit to areas where we will have the most impact, where the need for research and discovery is greatest. 

But to do this, we need your support.

Contributions to the Vice-Chancellor’s Fund provide scholarships for students who really need our support to access a Macquarie education, fund new projects that give students the best chance of succeeding and enable us to undertake world-class research in areas of need. In the future we will need capable people to find solutions to the world's most complex challenges. 

Please join your fellow alumni in donating today and light the way for the next generation of change makers and their bright ideas. Your donation can last for generations. 

Thank you to you and to our 176,000-strong alumni community for building a better society through investing in academic research and the future generation of researchers.

Vice-Chancellor and President
