How to donate

Donors can chose from an array of giving opportunities, matched to varying financial commitments and interest areas.

We actively seek contributions, both cash and in-kind, towards purposes including at this time:

  • Scholarships across all disciplines especially nursing and healthcare; education - early childhood, primary and secondary teaching
  • Pre-degree programs which often prove an effective stepping stone to further studies
  • Projects ranging from the vibrant VET sector to in-depth research programs
  • Projects that improve University facilities

100% of the funds raised go directly towards the purpose for which they were raised. Gifts may be tax-deductible. The Foundation is audited annually by the Northern Territory Auditor-General.

Foundation scholarshipsScholarships

Not only do we have a proud reputation of high quality teaching combined with innovative programs, we also offer an increasing number of scholarship opportunities.
You can work with us to establish a new Scholarship that fulfils these criteria:

  • $5,000 minimum per annum pledge – which can be either for only one student, or directed towards up to five scholarship recipients each year
  • It matches an existing cohort of students – a cohort is defined as those eligible under the selection criteria determined jointly by the sponsors and CDU. This means that the selection criteria must be sufficiently broad so as to include enough students to ensure a fair number of applicants

Your involvement is appreciated and our partnership includes invitations to the ceremonies that feature your scholars.

For more information about how you can support students through scholarships, please contact:
