A Message from the CEO/Head of College

Dear Members and Visitors to this site,

Since our establishment in 1911, our Association has faced a number of challenges, including two world wars, the depression, global financial crises and now the COVID-19 pandemic. Along with many other businesses, not-for-profits and individuals, our Association has been severely impacted by this once-in-a-lifetime ‘hit’. We are thus fighting for our survival and we need your support to help us save our Association – our Union, our House, our community – and to be safe with reopening.

We have continued to support our residents to live in a safe and caring environment during this difficult period, by being financially responsible and prudent, but your support has never been more important than now.

We thank those who kindly donated to our COVID-19 staff and resident funds early in this difficult year of 2020. However, this time, we are making an exceptional call for a one-off and larger than normal donation to help us recover and return to the vibrant Association that we were at the beginning of this year.

In our almost 110 years, we have survived and prospered with the support and dedication of our Members and many supporters and friends. More than ever, we need your financial support at this time.

I do so hope that you will be able to assist by completing the donation form here.

Should you not feel comfortable donating online, please call Graduate House on +61 3 9347 3428 to process your donation – yes, you will speak to a real live person who will also ask after the health and wellbeing of you and yours during these difficult times for us all, no matter where we are on this globe.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Kerry Bennett
CEO/Head of College
