Benefaction


Make a difference

Help impact the future of your organisation.

Since 1911 our Members have continued the experience of the meeting of the minds beyond university as they entered the workforce, had families, became leaders, volunteered across the world and retired.

These Members built the organisation through great generosity in the form of donations of funds and buildings, bequests and sponsorship, together with volunteer and pro bono work. We seek always to honour this legacy and to foster a culture of active and contributing membership.

Your support is essential for us to:

  • preserve and strengthen a proud graduate membership institution that is owned and run by its Members
  • strengthen our worldwide graduate network and international collegium
  • continue providing high quality affordable college accommodation for post-graduate students and visiting academics from all over the world
  • provide more funding, networking and career opportunities for graduates at all life stages
  • create scholarships, fellowships and recognition awards for graduates at all stages from graduation, through careers and caring roles, into retirement
  • work with industry to ensure strong post-graduate skill, career and professional development
  • honour in perpetuity those, like you, who support our Union and our House

We Acknowledge Our Donors


The Graduate Union and Graduate House have a proud history of support from our Members and a strong culture of recognising our generous benefactors.

Future Vision


We now look to continue our pivotal roles in nurturing the many early career graduates who stay in our college each year, supporting the many in-career academics, professionals and retired members of The Graduate Union who live and work all over the world, as well as continuing to be a hub for networking and contact for the thousands of people who visit our beloved ‘Graduate House’ each year.

If you or a family member have ever been a part of this association, we want to hear from you, to ask you to maintain contact with this strong community and help keep it alive well into the future. It is this tradition that has nurtured lifelong learning through our membership and the ‘House’ our meeting and living place.

Donations and bequests on behalf of current or past members can be recognised with naming rights to The Graduate Union Main Building, residential and function rooms, or particular artefacts around the college.
