Everyone’s circumstances are different with respect to what they can give, especially during these uncertain times. For Curtin Cares, any donation that is meaningful to you is meaningful to us.
All donors will be acknowledged on the Curtin Cares Honour Roll unless they elect otherwise on the donation form.
We will keep you updated on the impact of your gift via email. The progress of each Curtin Cares initiative will be shared on our website and social media channels like Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram.
In Australia, Curtin University is a Deductible Gift Recipient with Status 1. This means your donation is fully tax deductible in Australia as long as it is over $2.
Unfortunately, donations made to Curtin from outside Australia are not tax-deductible.
Each student is receiving a one-off cash injection of between $250 and $1,500 depending on circumstances and immediate needs.
To date, Curtin has funded more than 4,000 students with $3.2 million from its reserves. The need is rising, and we anticipate that by semester 2, up to 10,000 students may depend on this support.
Students are required to demonstrate financial hardship on an application that is simple to complete and assessed on an ongoing basis, to ensure they receive support as soon as possible.
The financial hardship bursary is accessible to all Curtin students irrespective of their nationality.
Helping nurses and teachers
Curtin’s School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine is developing resources to help upskill frontline healthcare staff to provide the best care possible during the pandemic and its aftermath.
The resources include short courses, online learning materials, new evidence-based guidelines for clinical care, ‘just in time’ learning opportunities to deal with developing situations, and mental health first aid for patients and families, which will include how to build individual and community resilience.
Curtin’s School of Education will be establishing and maintaining a comprehensive online resource repository which will be freely accessible to schools. It will support schools with high quality online/remote/blended learning now and into the future.
Curtin is here for all Western Australians and for its international campus communities too. We hope that all nurses, carers, and teachers will benefit from these resources.
