Thank you for your generous support of the UniSC Student Relief Giving Day.

Your gift has had an immediate and profound impact, contributing to our successful campaign that has raised significant funds for students. We are thrilled to inform you that, thanks to your support and others like you, we were able to raise a total of $130,000 this Giving Day! This is a clear testament to the power of collective goodwill and the generous nature of our communities.

In Semester 1, these funds made it possible for seven students to receive Study Support Bursaries, lightening their financial burden and empowering them to focus more fully on their studies. Because of you, they can concentrate on what matters most - their studies and their future.

We're excited to keep you updated on the incredible impact your gift will make on students' lives.

Once again, thank you for your generosity and for believing in our students' potential. Your contribution is not just a donation, it's a lifeline for our students.
