Curtin’s Alumni Annual Appeal is an opportunity for you to connect with your university, hear about news and achievements from current Curtin students, and come together with your fellow graduates to transform lives through philanthropy. Funds raised through our Alumni Annual Appeal will create new opportunities for those students with boundless potential but limited means and will help get innovative ideas off the ground.
Curtin’s 2019 Alumni Annual Appeal
The 2019 Alumni Annual Appeal ran for ten weeks, from 21 August to 30 October – Curtin’s longest phone appeal to date! Thirty-five student callers were recruited to ask graduates, in ways big or small, how are you making tomorrow better? We were so inspired by all the special conversations and inspiring stories that were shared, and thanks to your support, a huge $87,000 was raised! This phenomenal achievement highlights the outstanding generosity of our alumni community. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
If you were unable to take the phone call but would still like to donate, you can do so here. One hundred per cent of your donation will be used for the cause you choose to support (and is tax-deductible!), and we’ll be sure to keep you informed of the impact of your gift.
If you could give one piece of advice to a new Curtin student, what would it be?
In this year’s appeal, we asked our alumni to be guiding lights. Your caller asked you to share a piece of advice: words of wisdom you wish you’d heard as a new student.
Advice from our alumni will be displayed across campus, on our website and social media, and will be distributed to new students as they begin their Curtin journey.
Through the Alumni Annual Appeal, you have enabled scholarships for two students and propelled the business idea of a team of young graduates. In this video, you’ll meet the people whose lives you’ve transformed.
