Alumni & Friends

In these unprecedented and challenging times, I want to acknowledge and thank you for the support you have shown towards your University through the UOW USA Foundation through your individual gift or event registration.

As we witness the world changing so rapidly in the face of natural disaster, such as the Australian bushfires, the global health pandemic and economic uncertainty, I find it uplifting that you have continued to demonstrate kindness and a humanitarian spirit.

Your generosity has played an important part in the Foundation’s mission to support the University of Wollongong in achieving its vision through fundraising and support of education. I want you to know you have made an impact.

The power and opportunities available via education is something to be celebrated and shared. The University is committed to elevating our students, and being leaders in research that produces real world solutions to challenges we all face, such as the one we are currently experiencing. Our continued excellence in these areas can only be sustained with the support of our global network of alumni and friends.

Funds raised to date have already gone to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) research here at UOW, and to support international travel grants for students from both Australia and the USA.

All levels of support from alumni and friends of the University of Wollongong is important. Every gift makes an impact, so thank you.

There is no more salient time than now to stress the importance of interconnectedness and find ways we can support each other. We look forward to staying connected with you and providing opportunities for you to continue your relationship with UOW.
